A NovelLarge Print - 2001
As a boy, writer Jay Mackintosh spent three golden summers in the ramshackle home of Jackapple Joe Cox in the tiny English town of Kirby Monckton, finding solace in his simple wisdom, stories of adventure, and his Specials, magical homebrewed wines. It was all lost, though, when Joe disappeared without warning one fall. Years later, Jay's life is stalled. He hasn't written anything since Jackapple Joe, his artistic zenith, was published ten years ago. In an attempt to recapture the magic, he purchases a farmhouse in the French village of Lansquenet, sight unseen, and packs the last bottles of Joe's Specials.
