5.0 out of 5 stars Coming to grips in the 60's make for a great book!, December 10, 2002
This review is from: Bow's Boy: A Novel (Hardcover)
Bow's Boy is one those secret gems of a book a reader finds among the morass of today's cardboard fiction.

Bowman Epps has never set foot in a courtroom, but he is one of the best criminal appeals attorneys in the state of Wisconsin.
Ginger Piper is a small town hero. He will always be remember for the game-winning goal he made at the championship basketball game--even though he comes from one of the poorest families in Laroque.
Bowman operates one thing: logic. This is what makes him such a successful criminal appeals attorney. Even though a person in jail should be in jail, Bowman can always find the most finite flaw from that man's trial and set his free. Seeing, Ginger Piper speak at a Vietnam casualty funeral, Bowman can see in him some of these same attributes that he sees in himself, and Bowman takes Ginger under his wing.
But things go awry with Ginger, and Bowman has to decide against logic and take a stand on Ginger. How these two individuals interact with each other in the turmoil of the 1960's America makes for a great story and gripping novel.
At the same time, as this book takes place during the Viet-nam war, America was at its own grip with its own logic - should we fight or should we not fight.
Together, these two events tie this book into a concise story on the state of mind in the 1960s. Read it and reap great rewards for yourself.
