Jim Dodge’s unforgettable outlaw epic. Introduced by Thomas Pynchon.
When Daniel’s mother dies, he is brought under the protection of the AMO: the Alliance of Magicians and Outlaws. It is an introduction to a world of revenge, revolution and mind-bending chemicals, where anarchists, alchemists and high-stake gamblers co-exist. It is a place in which magic and murder are the norm.
So begins an extraordinary quest for knowledge and understanding in this unforgettable outlaw classic.
"A post-psychedelic coming-of-age fable that’s part Thomas Pynchon, part Tolkien, part Richard Brautigan, a story that owes as much to The Once and Future King as it does to Huckleberry Finn ...Stone Junction is a rollicking, frequently surprising adventure-cum-fairy tale"
