Pure Spring

by Brian Doyle

First Release:

April 2007

ISBN: 9780888997746

Martin's new job delivering soda for Pure Spring has some perks: he gets a free soda every day, and he gets to flirt with pretty Gerty McDowell each time he makes a delivery to her grandfather's store. But there's also a problem with the job-Randy, who drives the delivery truck. Randy constantly makes Martin uncomfortable, railing against Jews and Communists and showing him dirty pictures. Most objectionable of all, Randy has been cheating customers (including Gerty's grandfather) and forcing Martin to help.
