Rediscover an American classic! The Greatest Thing That Almost Happened by Don Robertson is an emotionally resonant, wonderfully evocative journey back to the early 1950s that reintroduces readers to a teenaged Morris Bird III, one of the most endearing characters in contemporary American literature. Fan Stephen King puts the first book in the Morris Bird III trilogy, The Greatest Thing Since Sliced Bread “on the same shelf as Catcher in the Rye and The Outsiders,” and calls Don Robertson “one of the best unknown novelists in the <_st13a_place _w3a_st="on"><_st13a_country-region _w3a_st="on">United States.” Find out what you’ve been missing with The Greatest Thing That Almost Happened.
