In any event, buy A Trip of Goats. And give it to your teenage son to read, as I'll do in 15 years or so. Combining as it does elements of the classic Coming of Age novel, character studies, and broad Keatonian slapstick, his book cries out to be made into a movie. It is alternately tender and hysterically funny mostly funny. The goats of the title refer to the Goat Man, a real character who roamed Georgia back in the day, and who provides an ongoing focus for the main character's curiosity and wanderlust.
Anyone who remembers the rural Georgia of the 's and prior, before creeping stripmallization made most parts of the country indistinguishable from one another, will recognize the rough-hewn locations portrayed in A Trip Of Goats. And the Senator is the kind of character that could be the tentpole of a film franchise. Crawford could have easily portrayed him as a buffoon, a mere comic foil, but that would not have done this deeply flawed - and deeply human - man justice. He is a loving father who will do anything to protect his son I enjoyed the hell out of this novel, the author's freshman effort.
I look forward to seeing whatever else he has up his sleeve.
