Little Brown has just published the trade paperback of The Bible Salesman, and has made 5 copies available to me for giveaway. Don't you love the chance to get a free book to enjoy? I haven't read it yet, but have seen several reviews that speak positively about it. Here's the publisher's description:
Preston Clearwater has been a criminal since stealing two chain saws and 1,600 pairs of aviator sunglasses from the army during the Second World War. Back on the road in postwar
, now a member of a car-theft ring, he picks up hitchhiking Henry Dampier, an innocent twenty-year-old Bible salesman. North Carolina Clearwaterimmediately recognizes Henry as smart but gullible, just the associate he needs--one who will believe Clearwateris working undercover for the F.B.I.; one who will drive the cars Clearwatersteals as follows along in his own car at a safe distance. Henry joyfully sees a chance to lead a dual life as a Bible salesman and a G-man. Clearwater
During his hilarious and scary adventures, Henry grapples with doubts about the Bible's accuracy, and we learn of his fundamentalist upbringing, an upbringing that doesn't prepared him for his new life. As he falls in love with the captivating Marleen Green and questions his religious training, Henry begins to see he's being used--that he is on his own in a way he never imagined.
