Larry Baker’s A Good Man Release & Tour!

Author Larry Baker’s new book, A Good Man, will be available in bookstores nationwide and on the internet beginning September 17. The roll-out of Baker’s latest novel comes amidst high praise from reviewers.

“A Good Man is filled with the wisdom won by suffering, characters you want to hang out with, and a story that charms and whose central figure is a lovable broken-down misfit aptly named Ducharme,” writes Academy-Award-winning director Peter Davis.

Patty Friedmann, author of Eleanor Rushing and Secondhand Smoke says, “Let me get this straight. Larry Baker takes a character from a Harry Chapin song, a character from a Flannery O’Connor short story, morphs them into a completely new character named Harry Ducharme, who is totally unique, but the same? How did he do that?”

“Not since Robert Stone’s A Hall of Mirrors have we been this privy to the troubled soul of a disk jockey,” writes John McNally, author of Ghosts of Chicago.

Baker frequently places his characters in and around St Augustine, Florida, and A Good Man goes far in introducing readers to this fascinating locale. Baker’s recent book, Flamingo Rising, was adapted by Hallmark as a television movie filmed in St Augustine and at Marineland.
