The Paperboy

Genre: Fiction; Author: Peter Dexter; Publisher: Random House

From Pete Dexter, the author of the National Book Award-winning novel Paris Trout, comes The Paperboy. This book is a darkly comic tale about the odd symbiosis between a pair of zealous Miami investigative reporters and their sources: a man perhaps wrongly sentenced to die in Florida’s electric chair, an alluring death-row groupie, and the swamp-dwelling, alligator-poaching clan whence the condemned man came.
