American Literature, Fiction

Three teenage boys, Nort and Dick Shannon and their friend, Bud Merkel, find themselves in the middle of the forbidding Gila Desert on an adventure that will, they hope, lead them to the fabled riches of desert gold. Their guides, the grizzled prospector, Hank Crosby, and the leathery old cowpoke, Billee Dobb, accompany them through blistering heat, savage sandstorms, and the dangers posed by the evil Del Pinzo and his sinister Indian companion, Zapto, men who want the treasure for themselves. In this brilliant, witty, yet fond burlesque of boys' adventure books, noted American novelist Gilbert Sorrentino tells the story in interrogative sentences, forcing the reader to answer the very questions of the narrative itself.

Gilbert Sorrentino is the author of New and Selected Poems 1958-1998, The Orangery, Mulligan Stew, Red the Fiend, Aberration or Starlight, Imaginative Qualities of Actual Things and numerous other works of fiction and poetry. He taught at Stanford University.
