With droll humor and biting wit, critically acclaimed author James Whorton, Jr. pens enjoyable novels in the tradition of John Kennedy Toole and Walker Percy.

In Frankland, a socially challenged young man named John H. Tolley aspires to be a prestigious historian despite his lack of a college degree. To that end, he embarks on a journey to east Tennessee to track down seventeenth President Andrew Johnson’s secret papers, which may or may not actually exist.

When he arrives, he meets a quirky group of people who inadvertently serve to obstruct him from his more scholarly pursuits.
