About This Item

July. Nebraska. Saturday Afternoon. At McKibben's Mobil Station, prudently situated at the intersection of Highway 20 and Main Street, a boy, a loner, is the only passenger to step down from the bus. Randall Hunsacker is seventeen, and the small farm town of Goodnight, Nebraska, is his punishment. It's also his last chance to escape events back home - a shooting, a car crash, a family in disarray. And even as he resists absorption into this strange small community, Randall will become a part of it. Goodnight, Nebraska is a stunning first novel about small-town America, where high school football, pheasant hunting and the Friendly Festival are as vital as the wheat harvest.

This book is in very good condition with a dust jacket in very good condition. This copy is signed by the author on the title page.



At the age of 17, Randall Hunsacker shoots his mother's boyfriend, steals a car and comes close to killing himself. His second chance lies in a small Nebraska farm town, where the landmarks include McKibben's Mobil Station, Frmka's Superette, and a sign that says The Wages of Sin is Hell. This is Goodnight, a place so ingrown and provincial that Randall calls it "Sludgeville"-until he starts thinking of it as home. In this pitch-perfect novel, Tom McNeal explores the currents of hope, passion, and cruelty beneath the surface of the American heartland. In Randall, McNeal creates an outcast whose redemption lies in Goodnight, a strange, small, but ultimately embracing community where Randall will inspire fear and adulation, win the love of a beautiful girl and nearly throw it all away.From the Trade Paperback edition.
