An amusing page-turning tale of clashing cultures in today's America. This off-beat romp mixes its unlikely characters into a sardonic cocktail with a fresh twist. Jackson Puffi, professional underachiever, picks up Hudson, a hitchhiker with mysterious powers and their lives are changed forever. On a mission to transform their world, they move to Portland, Oregon to find homeless teens; a Rumi scholar/bike messenger/dungeon mistress; a sinuous monkey-boy; hillbillies; a predatory religious eccentric/venture capitalist; a vengeful mobster/ businessman who desperately needs a liver donation; and a wily donut maker. Now featuring illustrations by Stewart Thomas.
