In The Lone Surfer of Montana, Kansas,
Davy Rothbart's stories grow out of road trips and small towns and are populated by questionable heroes and gold-hearted thugs. Full of loneliness and hope, heartbreak and humor, Rothbart's tales blaze their way from midwestern farm fields to state prisons and border-town brothels.
Much like the lost, tossed, and forgotten items Rothbart collected in his acclaimed book, Found,
the stories in The Lone Surfer of Montana, Kansas
capture the oddity, poetry, and dignity of everyday life.
