In George Singleton's smart and hilarious first book, characters that eerily resemble you and me try to make sense of modern absurdities: how to find a black-market sonogram so your pregnant wife won't find out you accidentally taped over the original; how to help your father -- and everyone else in town -- fake being hit by a tornado to get emergency government funds; and why not to look for your next wife at your local recycling center. With a style all his own, Singleton takes us into a world that wins our hearts but frightens our senses, as we realize that we are staring into a mirror that reflects our own wishes and desires.

Singleton has distinguished himself with this rich volume of Southern-related stories, all previously published in literary magazines and anthologies including Georgia Review, New Stories from the South, Greensboro Review, Apalachee Quarterly, Southern Review, and Playboy.

Step into George Singleton's world and you'll see why he is earning a reputation as one of the funniest, wisest, and most surprising Southern writers of his generation.
