Will Ferguson's Spanish Fly was long-listed for an
IMPAC Dublin Award and short-listed for a Leacock
Medal for humor. Times are tough for young Jack
McGreary in the American Dust Bowl. Living with his
father, Jack is only getting by thanks to a solid repertoire
of cons and scams. Everything gets shaken up, though,
when shysters Virgil Ray and Miss Rose roll into town.
Recognizing them as first-class scam artists, Jack gleefully
joins their criminal band. Soon a budding romance between Jack and Miss Rose begins to bloom, but is it on the up-and-up?
