As qThe Book of the Lamq opens, psychocomic antihero Billy Henderson is on the lam in a car on the open highway, spiraling downward. With no real plan except to land at the bottom, he zigzags across the country, through California, the Great Southwest, New York, the South, and beyond, littering the terrain.Sean Abbott of Random House has called qThe Book of the Lamq 'a fine rampage through the American scene.qand used cars, a TV Guide, aRolling Stone issue with Madonna on the cover as if a simple visitation could save the world, ... I look around for mud flaps but cana#39;t find any, three large low-fat slishees out of the low-fat slishee machine that I know ... I lift myself up further from elbow to the palm of my hand among the little plastic people as the broken man looks at me sourly, then gets in his truck and drives away, his truck groaning away into the distance, leaving more smoke for me to suffer.
