John Pritchard signs SAILING TO ALLUVIUM

Tuesday, November 19, 2013 - 5:00pm
Sailing to Alluvium is the third installment in John Pritchard's critically acclaimed series that follows the antics of Junior Ray and his buddy, Voyd Mudd.

In the first book, entitled Junior Ray, the duo pursued an elusive psychotic with the aim of "shooting" him but failed to do so.

In Pritchard's second book, The Yazoo Blues, Junior Ray spends a great deal of time explaining an obscure Northern military fiasco on the Tallahatchie River and simultaneously tells the reader about his new-found joys in "Meffis" at the Magic Pussy Cabaret & Club.

Now, in the third installment, Junior Ray and Voyd become "diktectives" in order to solve a not-so-mysterious murder mystery.

John Pritchard's work fits well between the prose of James Agee and the rustic lampoon and high humor of Erskine Caldwell. The reader is treated to a unique brand of dark funniness that closes the divide between burlesque and metaphysics, fuses the profane with the sublime, and uniquely explains the Deep South.
