Country Roads. The Internal Life of a Mannish Rascal, by Eugene Landon Hobgood

Author: Eugene Landon Hobgood
Genre: Fiction
Pages: 245 (estimated)

Book Synopsis:

Country Roads is the story of an adventurous Black boy in the rural American South of the Nineteen Forties. This narrative takes the reader with Randolph Wilford as he tries to make sense of events that take place in his community, his fertile imagination and his precocious libido. It is a sometimes amusing, sometimes eye opening and frequently emotional journey.


This is definitely a book that will pleasantly impress any reader. It is light but yet having the ability of causing blood flow to increase. This is only due to the author’s great quality of finding the best match of words, not to mention the great scenery, to make up a story that will make anyone keep the book into his hands, from beginning and up until the end.
