Lawrence Block: No Score (2016)
From the Publisher:
Here's CHIP HARRISON -- the second series character created by Lawrence Block, bestselling author of A WALK AMONG THE TOMBSTONES...
Chip's debut in NO SCORE opens with the lad orphaned and cast adrift by the loathsome headmaster of his prep school. Thus unfolds a picaresque tale in which young Chip travels far and wide, determined to make his way in the world and somehow shrug off the awful cloak of virginity. This earnest and endearing Lecher in the Wry finds work as an assistant to Gregor the Pavement Photographer (whose wife keeps him forever on Third Base, and won't let him steal home) and employment as a Termite Salesman. He falls in and out of love, and, well, you'll see.
