Summary
"In June of 1956, Bruce Temple has a high school diploma in his hand and little thought in his head of how to conquer his newest challenges: college, military obligation, career field, virginity. On a whim, he lands a job in a TV station near his hometown. Mastering TV production techniques is a slow, stressful learning experience for Bruce, however, his personal life education accelerates when his long-time friend, Larry Stone, gets a job at the station. Larry and female co-workers introduce Bruce to the life a Southern Baptist boy has only heard about in sermons. Provoked at a party, Larry breaks the TV weatherman{u0092}s jaw and is fired. Bruce is also canned due to an event indirectly related to the party. Ol{u0092} Mac, TV station handyman and Bruce{u0092}s philosophical mentor, quits his job in protest of the firings. The jobless trio hit the road in search of fame, fortune, women, the meaning of life, and their next meal."--Amazon
