Peter Leroy recalls a childhood journey of discovery that he made from the mouth of the Bolotomy River to its source, traveling with his best (and imaginary) friend Rodney "Raskol" Lodkochnikov. The journey begins with the work of turning a packing case (which Cap'n Andrew Leech intends to use, later, as a coffin) into a shallow-draft boat, it involves encounters with a philosophical vagrant and a gaggle of beautiful nymphs, and it ends with the metaphor of life as a river turned on its head. "Life on the Bolotomy concerns the river journey of Peter and his chum Raskolnikov to the source of the Bolotomy River - a riotous inversion of both Thoreau's Merrimack expedition and Huck 'n' Jim's Mississippi quest" John Stark Bellamy II, Cleveland Plain Dealer LENGTH: novella, approximately 20,000 words, 96 pages in the trade paperback edition
