The place: Moseley, Georgia. The time: the summer of 1979. As 16-year-old Trout Moseley moves to the small town that bears his family’s name and legacy, his mother is a patient in an Atlanta psychiatric facility and his father -- a 300-pound motorcycle-riding Methodist minister -- is delivering scandalous sermons comparing Jesus with Elvis and the Holy Ghost with his college football coach. As summer stretches toward an uncertain future, Trout faces the challenge of reconciling powerful ancestral traditions with his search for a sense of self. He finds refuge in a job at Dairy Queen and in Keats, the strong-willed, sharp-tongued girl who captures his heart. But when chaos breaks out, Trout must figure out how to save himself.
