Dunfords Travels Everywheres

William Melvin Kelley

1 Reviews

Rated 0

Historical fiction

William Melvin Kelley's final work, a Joycean, Rabelaisian romp in which he brings back some of his most memorable characters in a novel of three intertwining stories.

Ride on out with Rab and Turt, two o'New Afriqueque's toughfast, ruefast Texnosass Arangers, as they battle Chief Pugmichillo and ricecure Mr. Charcarl Walker-Rider. Cut in on Carlyle Bedlowe, wrecker of marriage, saver of souls.

Or just along with Chig Dunford, product of Harlem and private schools, on the circular voyage of self-discovery that takes him from Europe's Cafe of One Hand to Harlem's Jack O'Gee's Golden Grouse Bar & Restaurant.

Beginning on an August Sunday in one of Europe's strangest cities, Dunfords Travels Everywheres but always returns back to the same point-the "Begending"-where Mr. Charcarl's dream becomes Chig Dunford's reality.
