[slight discoloration to top edges of boards, bumped at base of spine, small literary agency label on ffep; jacket edgeworn and creased (mostly along top edge), with a few tiny chips along top edge of front panel "A young man comes into a Midwestern town on a white motorcycle. The townspeople don't know what to make of him: is he a turned-on no-good looking for trouble, a reincarnated James Dean, or some unusual kind of Christian?" The story is told in the voices of the people who get most involved with him: a gas-station owner who gives him a job; a cafe owner in whom he awakens a motherly instinct, and something more; a troubled Vietnam veteran; the local "bad girl" (she's the one who thinks he's James Dean); and the local rich girl. It's a "warm, yet disquieting story [that will give the reader] a special understanding of what it's like -- what it's all about -- now." And who couldn't use that, eh?
