1970s rural Texas: Larry Buddles is a deaf autistic savant in his 60s who moves to farm country to escape his critical peers in the world of science. His odd behavior soon unnerves the locals. At first, they think he’s a crazy recluse until one day he saves the life of a crippled dog and his astounding genius is revealed. His world turns upside down when the world discovers the secrets Larry’s been hiding.  Local fame turns to rejection, plunging Larry into spiraling terror. Emotionally little more than a child, Larry’s new life in Sanger, Texas  forces him to grow up and face the real world while struggling to reconnect with his estranged daughter. Where once he was selfish and shunned religion in favor of science, this misfit man unexpectedly finds acceptance in a conservative evangelical community of people he once considered beneath him. Unbeknownst to Larry, his bond with Duke prepares him to face a life or death decision about his grandchild. The Misfit Man is a tale of mystery, intrigue, love and loss in which all those involved experience the world anew through the eyes of each other.
