The Flying Boy of Calhoun County, Tennessee
By David Wallechinsky
Suzy Watkins is a journalist who writes a column about strange and unexplained events, like reports of UFO abductions, fish falls and haunted houses. Mostly she mocks the true believers by exposing the truth behind these phenomena. But she finds herself wishing that just once one of these incidents will prove to be real, and that there is still magic in the world. One day she receives a letter about rumors that, in an extremely remote part of Appalachia, there lives a young man who can fly. Wanting to believe, she enters a world of bizarre characters, some of them violent, some of them kind and some of them just plain weird.
David Wallechinsky is the best-selling author of numerous books, including The People’s Almanac, The Book of Lists and Tyrants: The World’s 20 Worst Living Dictators.
