display_description "Between the Bridge and the River is the debut novel by Craig Ferguson, host of The Late Late Show. Two childhood friends from Scotland and two illegitimate half-brothers from the deep South suffer and enjoy all manner of bizarre adventures that, it turns out, are somehow interconnected - and, even more surprisingly, meaningful. The eclectic cast of characters features Socrates, Carl Jung, and Tony Randall, along with an ex-television evangelist with a penchant for booze, prostitutes, and uncomfortable knitwear who gets mugged in Miami by an almost pure-blooded Watusi warrior, and sets off on a road trip in a stolen motor home." "Between the Bridge and the River is a romantic comic odyssey that is impossible to summarize - and impossible to stop reading."--JACKET.
