southern literary fictional novel

Dale Thele

Add southern tradition, charm, and naivete of Scout Finch, from Harper Lee's TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD. Then add the stubborn, shortsightedness, and unfiltered mouth of Holden Caufield, from J.D. Salinger's CATCHER IN THE RYE, and you have Shane Davison's telling of his personal encounter set in the early 1970's, entitled: CLIPPED WINGS. Shane takes the reader into his confidence and shares his real-time narrative of facing the challenges of being the first openly gay high school male, in a small, conservative, north Oklahoma town. A true southern literary fictional novel currently being written by Dale Thele.
