(1958)
A novel by

 
By the author of THE SOT-WEED FACTOR and THE FLOARING OPERA. THE END OF THE ROAD is the story of Jacob Horner. On his 28th birthday, he decides that he has no convincing reason for doing anything. And that's what he does, nothing- until a strange black man who calls himself a doctor tells him about his case and prescribes teaching at Wicomico State Teacher's College as a cure. There he meets Joe Morgan, a young historian, and Rennie, his wife. Joe and Rennie have taught themselves to say goodbye to objective values. Jacob had none in the first place. This is the story of Jacob, Joe and Rennie. They are in love.
