Judas Cain—a lonely man simply trying to survive The Great Depression—suddenly stumbles into a job he doesn’t want, falls in love with a prostitute who doesn’t love him, and incurs the wrath of the most dangerous man in Mississippi. Then World War II explodes!
Michael Jennings, author of Ave Antonina, writes “Judas Cain descends more directly from the most iconic vagabond in American literature, Huckleberry Finn. Only, unlike Huck, Judas Cain lit out for the territory a long time ago. The questions in his case are whether he’s found his way back, and if so, how long he intends to stay.”
