About the Author
Praise For The Scummers…
"Behold the final record of Jesse Stone, pure fire and tow. You’ll look at these pages sideways. You’ll wish to hit somebody in the temple with your beer bottle. Or maybe you won’t. But if you listen to the roar of this book, if you truly hear the music of Lee Maynard -- a writer who marches to no drummer, different or otherwise -- you’ll get to where you need to go."
Glenn Taylor, a Professor of Creative Writing at West Virginia University and the author of The Ballad of Trenchmouth Taggart, a 2009 National Book Critics Circle Award finalist and The Marrowbone Marble Company
“Funny, rousing, big-hearted, engagingly kooky, and truly memorable.”
Lee K. Abbott, Humanities Distinguished Professor of English, Ohio State University
“Lee Maynard is a genius.”
Stephen Coonts, author of Flight of the Intruder
“A roadmap of a never-ending quest for that elusive place in the heart we call home.”
Chuck Kinder, author of Last Mountain Dancer: Hard-Earned Lessons in Love, Loss, and Honky-Tonk Outlaw Life
