The Dog of the South (Google eBook)
Ray Midge is waiting for his credit card bill to arrive. His wife, Norma, has run off with her ex-husband, taking Ray's cards, shotgun and car. But from the receipts, Ray can track where they've gone. He takes off after them, as does an irritatingly tenacious bail bondsman, both following the romantic couple's spending as far as Mexico. There Ray meets Dr Reo Symes, the seemingly down-on-his-luck and rather eccentric owner of a beaten up and broken down bus, who needs a ride to Belize. The further they drive, in a car held together by coat-hangers and excesses of oil, the wilder their journey gets. But they're not going to give up easily.

Review: The Dog of the SouthUser Review - Jason Wright - Goodreads
One of the funniest books I have ever read. Charles Portis doesn't tell a single joke in the book, but I was laughing the whole time. This is really a classic that few people know. Read full review
