Summary
Benjamin Sippy, a successful but unfulfilled pulp fiction writer in midlife crisis, flees his stable Philadelphia life and wife and nine daughters in search of the lawless West of his stories. After a comically abortive attempt at train-robbing, he happens quite by accident upon a cowboy and his sid ekick, a kid of 20 named Billy Bone, whose one accidental shooting has earned him an undeserved but welcome reputatio n as a dangerous gunslinger. In the folksy style of old dimestore novels, this fictional memoir of Billy the Kid is told t hrough the eyes of a greenhorn who just happened to be there, saw it all and aims to set the record straight
