Junior Ray Junior Ray by John Pritchard


My rating: 4 of 5 stars
An entertaining and often hilarious novel about a sheriff's deputy in the Mississippi Delta who decides he needs to kill Leland Shaw, a WWII veteran who just escaped a mental institution. The novel is written in the first person and very much in the dialect of Junior Ray, who is racist, sexist and ignorant. This makes it sometimes difficult to read, despite its shortness. Sometimes, however, Junior Ray inadvertently provides keen insight into the human condition. The book, like its narrator, is profane, irreverent, and hysterical. Highly recommended for those who aren't squeamish.
