I borrowed this book from my boyfriend long about 1991, and lately I’ve been thinking of elements of it, but for the life of me can’t dredge up much detail, never mind the title.
It’s a contemporary fantasy novel, and might or might not be part of a series. It involves a (Southern?) family with special powers. One brother can predict the day’s events by the first song he hears on the radio in the morning, and at one point the song is “All Along the Watchtower.”
There’s a character who IIRC is a caretaker or handyman or something - he’s kind of skeezy and disreputable, but also sexually potent. Toward the end of the book, I believe he is revealed to be a kind of Green Man, nature god sort of thing. I think he’s also a sort of mentor to the boy who is the narrator or a main character.
Anyone got anything for me? I would really appreciate it, as it is driving me crazy!
