(1 Ratings)
Price: $5.99
A highly original tale of a man given a second chance at life with the guidance of a talking chicken. A bump on the head sends Jackson Fitzroy, known as Flanker, into a temporary amnesia. But all is not lost: As the owner of a chicken broiler house, he now has the companionship and assistance of MAC, a talking chicken, the most ancient spokeschicken. MAC, who has the uncanny ability to not only advise Flanker but also read his mind, carefully helps him piece together the details of his life. As his attachment to MAC and the others grows, Flanker learns more about the tragedies he had been running from before he hit his head, and he begins to understand how he can save himself, his marriage and his future. Told in a sardonic style, the well-paced story has flashes of comedy with surprising turns of insight.

    Flanker Fitzroy, Virginia gentleman and man about town, is suddenly landed with a chicken farm and 15 thousand baby chicks in need of maternal care. Bankruptcy looms; Flanker's sultry southern womenfolk agitate; oyster pirates and a deranged crop-duster attack the farm. Even the chickens rebel. Life refuses to go Flanker's way--in his off-hours he's frog-marched across a nudist beach--and a big chicken company, not a million miles from KFC, wants his hide. For all the keenly enjoyable farce and frenzy, Plucked Again! is at heart a comic dialogue on the human predicament. The characters live and love, and the witty, sometimes downright philosophical asides keep on coming.
