Publisher's Summary

Nominated for the American Book Award, Ray is the bizarre, hilarious, and consistently adventurous story of a life on the edge. Dr. Ray - a womanizer, small-town drunk, vigilante, poet, adoring husband - is a man trying to make sense of life in the 20th century. In flight from the death he dealt flying over Vietnam, Dr. Ray struggles with those bound to him by need, sickness, lunacy, by blood, and by love.

I love Barry Hannah but I HATE THIS BOOK!

The narrator sounds so old and most of the book is about sex so it was a little weird to hear someone who sounds like they are 90 years old going on and on about different sex acts ad nauseum. I LOVE Barry Hannah's Airships, but this made me want to go take w shower. I don't get why this book is so beloved as a cult classic. Sorry! Barry, love you! Hate this book, and really hate the choice of narrator.
