The Compleat Dartshooter is a dark and whimsical look at the world that lies nestled in the bosom of every small town in America. From the moment that the orphaned exile Aznap "Nappy" Ochnas meets a charismatic mafia bagman named Fletcher Widdy, the pair roam about searching for the meaning of life, or at least a good game of darts. From the bars and taverns of the coal country in Northeastern Pennsylvania to the New York Open, the pair challenge each other and all comers for money and fame on the dart circuit. The competition is not limited to the dartboard: Nappy is heir to his late father's deeply held belief in truth and beauty, while Fletch's worldview is far more cynical. The picture gets even more complex when Nappy falls for Patti Pulkowski, Fletch's ex-lover and a top-ranked dart shooter in her own right. What Nappy sees as a lark that will distract him from his losses and a dead-end future quickly turns sinister when Nappy's niavete leads him to break his word to Fletch and his cronies. Add a briefcase full of mob money, some dysfunctional Mafioso, Socrates, the law, sinus conditions, murder, Descartes, pride, tobacco and the North Carolina Coast, and you have a fun and compelling examination of the landscape and personalities that make up small-town America. The Compleat Dartshooter is a tale of love, violence, faith and adventure and of two men's existential stuggle to make sense of a seemingly senseless world.
