Set in the coastal hills of northern California, and spanning over a hundred years, Fup
revolves around three larger-than-life characters: two humans and one duck.
There is Grandaddy Jake Santee, 99 years old, an unreformed gambler, a cranky reprobate and fierce opponent of the work ethic. And there is Tiny, adopted at the age of four by Grandaddy Jake, a giant young man as gentle as Jake is belligerent.
And then there is Fup, an uncompromising twenty-pound hen mallard, whose unique presence enforces a sense of order on the Santee household.
