Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

It's back in print — the comic masterpiece that Anne Tyler trumpeted on the front cover of the New York Times Book Review (see below), the book that Toni Morrison counts among her favorite works by unsung writers, the novel beloved of discerning writers, readers, and critics across the country.

Synopsis:

"Wilcox ... is a precocious master of old-fashioned farce, and this novel ... is a wonderfully funny explosion of comedy that is solidly based, as a good comic novel must be, on a serious understanding of life". — The New Yorker.

I read this book 17 years ago and still smile when I think of the characters, their situations, and funny sayings. This is a great book that will make you smile fora long time, whether you are a Baptist or not.
