...and Never Coming Back... is a wonderful and fast read. A fast read not due to simplicity but from the superb story-crafting of the author. From the first few pages, the book takes the reader through the twists and turns of Hollywood in the late eighties interlaced with the main character's, Frank Stacy, tortured memories from 1960's small town Georgia. Wilson's knowledge of the movie industry is evident and he brings the reader into a surrealistic and distorted lifestyle very quickly and believably.
But let's not forget the other side of this novel and that is the author's gift for Southern writing. The juxtaposition of Hollywood, California to Ellaville, Georgia gives us a blunt dialectic to draw from and really lets us know the long road, both physically and mentally, that Frank Stacy has traveled.
I have to say, the end of this book had a two day effect on me and dredged up the ghosts of my own upbringing in the south. Wilson captured these people and their mannerisms admirably.
