As Jimmy pursues his desire for Gena, he is unexpectedly entangled with the strange manipulations of an anarchistic teenager, Kid with Clownhead, who wants to start his own destructive cult when he grows up."A gloriously deranged, endless original adventure through ordinary bat country" - Drunk Monkeys“A tantalizing joyride of contemporary American dysfunction …”- Zygote in My Coffee"Because of his strange, unconventional (yet truthful) characters, Bud Smith's odd landscape of stories are, more often than not, the most disarming of any around." - Up the Staircase“At the intersection of the mundane and the surreal you’ll find Bud Smith. Poetic, profane and bizarre, Smith’s characters and the world he creates simultaneously attracts and repulses; just when you think you’ve got the characters pegged they do something wonderful like shitting in a box or disgusting like falling in love. Outrageous and frighteningly real, Bud Smith’s writing is always beautifully written and wildly entertaining.” – Martha Grover, Author of One More for the People.“There are two types of people: tollbooth operators and people who think there are people who aren’t tollbooth operators. Bud Smith’s Tollbooth is about you, whether you like it or not. You most likely do not work in a tollbooth but chances are you do know what it’s like to work a mind-numbing job. Chances are you also know what it’s like to make life-changing mistakes. And I hope to goodness and back that you also know what it’s like to take a risk that will possibly change everything for the better. Tollbooth has all of these things, but you probably know that already because you’re in it.” Aaron Dietz, author of SuperTollbooth, the debut novel from Bud Smith, author of the short story collection Or Something Like That, is laugh out loud literary fiction, and continues Bud Smith's deeper examinations of what happens "when regular people's lives explodes into the beautifully absurd". Follow Jimmy Saare through car fires, ghostly visitations, the reckless pursuit of his fleeting fantasies, into the tug of a looming destructive cult, as "normal" gets derailed through his search for his own place in the wilds beyond common New Jersey. A simple cage isn't for everybody.
