The Land of Debris and the Home of Alfredo
Kenn Amdahl
A funny and quirky novel that follows an amnesiac across North America in search of his lost life, armed only with a telephone number that no longer seems to be working correctly. The humor is balanced by beautifully crafted sentences and moments of poignant insight. This book was the first novel ever printed on paper made from 100 percent kenaf fiber.

Profile Picture

A man walks through the deserted prairie of Oklahoma. He knows he is missing something, but he can't quite figure out what it is. Suddenly, in a moment of breakthrough, he realizes he has no memories left. Who is he? Why is he in the middle of nowhere? He finds a gas station and tries to call the one number that he remembers and gets an answering machine to "The Land of Debris and Home of Alfredo." Progressing through the most ludicrous of situations, the man finds himself in such places as New Mexico, Mexico City, Oregon, Las Vegas, Lousiana, and Kansas.
