the Big Jiggety
Michael Kent, author
After a family Christmas vacation in and outside of Paris in 1976, where a friend leads him to one of the seedier areas of the French capital, a freshman student returns to Montana to further explore America, self, and find love. But first, as he hitchhikes through the frigid western landscape, he needs to find a doctor. His adventures will lead him from class to class, from teaching guitar chords to wild bars, from Missoula to Wyoming on to New York and back to France. Women remain an enigma, an unassailable fortress, but what protagonist Albert Nostran lacks in finesse, he makes up for in energy and persistence.
