Norwood, Charles Portis.
The bus came and Norwood and Rita Lee got on with their plunder and Norwood came back up front and stood on the step. Joe William said, Let me know how you make out down there with Roy Acuff and Hank Williams and all those guys. Roy Acuff is in Nashville, Tennessee, and Hank Williams is dead.
Norwood stuck his head up in the notch between the two seats. That’s where somebody throwed a recap, said Norwood. They get hot enough and they’ll just peel right off. You can’t tell about a recap. Do you mean the Second Marines or Second Marine Division? he said.

The book follows its namesake protagonist on a misadventurous road trip from his hometown of Ralph, Texas, to New York City and back.

Charles Portis' Norwood is a strange, strange, little endearing story about a guy named Norwood going on a mini-adventure from Ralph, Texas to New York City and back. Along the way he meets a midget, wins a girl's heart, and steals a fortune telling chicken. I don't really know what to make of it and I can't explain why, but it made me literally laugh out loud at some points. It shouldn't be good, really. But it is thoroughly enjoyable.
Ex-marine and troubadour Norwood Pratt gets involved in a wild journey that takes him in and out of stolen cars, freight trains, and buses. As with all of Portis's fiction (including "True Grit"), the tone is cool, sympathetic, funny, and undeniability American. Результаты поиска по книге. Результаты 1 – 3 из 19.

Charles Portis, the reclusive author of the 1968 novel True Grit, is a cult writer’s cult writer, cherished by a small but devoted following. The trick of Mr. Portis’s books, especially the ones told in the first person, is that they pretend to be serious. They’re full of odd events and odd people with names like Norwood Pratt, Raymond Midge and Dr. Reo Symes, inventor of the underappreciated Brewster Method, a miracle cure for arthritis. But these are presented without a wink or a nudge, or any sense that slapstick touches like smooth-talking midgets, bread-fondling deliverymen or elderly gents wearing conical goatskin caps are at all unusual.
