Will young Johnny-Malloy (in the South, they often turned the two names into one) find answers to his most perplexing questions—is there a God; why are we here; why won’t his girlfriend have sex with him—and find a way to stay out of trouble, or will he remain a hopeless delinquent?
Growing up would be challenging, anyway, for a kid like Johnny Malloy. Confused and self-absorbed, he secretly feels detached and different. He pretends, however—with results that range from heartrending to hilarious—to be like everyone else. Add a judgmental priest, a menacing nun, a controlling mother, and a frustrating girlfriend, and his challenges grow exponentially. In The Great Pretender, a coming-of-age novel set in the deep south of the mid-twentieth century, a precocious adolescent meets these trials with courage, defiance and humor.
