Publisher's Summary

A middle-aged man, an ancient dog, and a new Mustang. A search for sustenance in a battered America.
Carson McCullough has given his career to a singular pursuit - putting out a small daily newspaper that keeps his employees engaged and his hometown informed. But as time and technology conspire against him, Carson's Argus-Dispatch is shuttered by a new owner with a different view of its future.
Stung by the abrupt end of his career and burdened by regret and grudges, Carson and his one true companion, a yellow Lab named Hector, set out on a road trip. As the miles pile up and Carson erratically drives into the residue of past decisions and the consequences of current actions, he confronts questions of love, faith, self-worth, and, perhaps most pressing, whether he can redefine himself after his identity is stripped away.
In his seventh novel, Craig Lancaster (600 Hours of Edward, The Fallow Season of Hugo Hunter) returns to the broad themes of his award-winning work and goes deeper yet, straight into the heart and mind of a good man who has lost his way and is struggling against himself to set things right.

A Compelling Trip Down Julep Street

Lancaster's best book yet! The protagonist, Carson, is a complex, very sympathetic character, and Hector is the best dog to inhabit a book in a long time. The tensions in the plot are current and very compelling, as is the struggle with religious faith. Narration is excellent! David Otey projects different voices for a variety of characters with slight variations in dialect and cadence . He avoids falsetto tones for the female characters and yet conveys their personalities. I am definitely recommending this Audible book to members of my book groups!
