Summary
Shuggie Akins is a lonely fat boy of thirteen whose father is a brutal man and whose mother "teases him with her sexual provocations" and then begins a torrid affair with Jimmy Vin Pearce.--Jacket
Summary
Shug Akins is a lonely, overweight thirteen-year-old boy. His mother, Glenda, is the one person who loves him-she calls him Sweet Mister and attempts to boost his confidence and give him hope for his future. Shuggie's purported father, Red, is a brutal man with a short fuse who mocks and despises the boy. Into this small-town Ozarks mix comes Jimmy Vin Pearce, with his shiny green T-bird and his smart city clothes. When he and Glenda begin a torrid affair, a series of violent events is inevitably set in motion
