What Johnny discovers—along with the limits of his personal endurance—is that passing judgment is a perilous endeavor. This Texas tavern and the unforgettable characters for whom it provides recreation and, in some cases a reason for living, reflect a far more complex reality than Johnny had anticipated. And in the person of Bonney himself, Johnny finds a man who is more than capable of stretching small truths and shading small sins, in order to prevent a larger miscarriage of justice.
This classic novel immerses the reader in a richly layered and vivid assemblage of rural Texas characters such as Rose- Mama, Turnip, Slat, Samuel Wilkerson Hobbs, Jr., and, of course, Bonney himself. Often hilariously funny, Bonney's Place is a world of obvious weaknesses, enduring strengths, and the many small exaltations of life.
