Skid lives in the Lousiana swamps, east of New Orleans. His father expects to make a killing when the property developers move in. His mother is a Voodoo priestess of Taino Native American extraction. His brother has magical healing powers, sketching with his left hand. And just when you think it cannot possibly get more bonkers than that, the alligators move into the shack. This is a ride into the American psyche that you will not forget.
