River’s Edge Media Launches The Mullet Manifesto by Roger Pinckney
LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (Oct. 26, 2015) — Award-winning journalist, author and Lowcountry legend Roger Pinckney recently launched his newest book, The Mullet Manifesto, during an event at the Morris Museum of Art in Augusta, GA.
It’s the last of the free and wild days and Yancey, Grayson, and Little Rip lay claim to a scrubby little island along a deserted stretch of beach. They hunt and fish and roam the woods but the world comes hammering at their cabin door. Prince Faisal, heir to the Saudi throne, is looking for a secure anchorage for his sea-going yacht and the boys’ fish camp is square in the way of a fat real estate deal. The boys will not back down, and after parties unknown torch their camp, they plot an unlikely but deadly revenge, the assassination of a Saudi royal.
“Roger knows more than he should about white and black magic…about good mojo and bad and how to mix potions for the pain of unrequited love.”— William Price Fox, author
“Pinckney writes of decent people trying to stay that way in a damned indecent world.”
— James Babb, editor Gray’s Sporting Journal
