Description
(2009 National Book Critics Circle Award Finalist) Meet Early "Trenchmouth" Taggart, a man born and orphaned in 1903, nicknamed for his lifelong oral affliction. His boyhood is shaped by the Widow Dorsett, a strong West Virginia mountain woman who teaches him to hunt and survive the taunts of others. Glenn Taylor's debut novel, a tall tale in the Mark Twain tradition, tells the epic, hundred-year story of an exile who sips moonshine, handles snakes, pleasures women, and masters the rifle and the harmonica, trying just to stay one step ahead of trouble.

"Taylor has created a marvelous, jump-off-the-page character ... a defiantly incredible creation.... The writing is limber, and the real life it bundles up into its freakish, charismatic character make this a genuine success that admirers of John Irving and others tooŚwill surely enjoy."ŚIndependent (London)
