Description

“Tim Sandlin’s stuff is as tight and funny as anyone doing this comedy novel thing.” —Christopher Moore Everyone in GroVont, Wyoming, knows everybody else’s business, but Maurey Pierce Talbot is practically famous around town. Sunk low since her father died, whiskey— specifically Yukon Jack—is her best friend. When she makes the mistake of a lifetime, Maurey finds herself looking up from rock bottom. So when two bumbling ex-drunks need to get cross-country with a trailer full of illegal beer, Maurey takes the wheel. Sometimes you just need to get out of town. And sometimes you need to get lost in order to get found. “Able storytelling and an engaging cast of dysfunctional modern American pilgrims animate this winning tale of the road… Sandlin fashions a convincing tale of redemption.” —Publishers Weekly (starred review) “A rousing piece of Americana…rowdy, raunchy…A total delight.” —Library Journal “Tim Sandlin’s fic tion packs a punch. The writer’s fictional Wyoming town is a grungier version of Garrison Keillor’s Lake Wobegon.” —Denver Post “A zany road trip across America” —Cosmopolitan “Sandlin understands that black comedy is only a tiny slip away from despair, and he handles this walk without a misstep.” —Dallas Morning News
