Synopses & Reviews
The redneck lifestyle is exposed through the hilariously antithetical filter of formal Japanese haiku in this collection of original verses. Each of the over 100 wickedly funny poems contains just three lines and 17 syllables, yet together they address the whole spectrum of redneck culture, including RVs, Wal-Mart, beer, Pop-Tarts, pickups, monster trucks, NASCAR, boats, trailers, trailer parks, barns, hunting, shotguns, dogs, Las Vegas, and the lottery.
“Witte . . . lives up to her surname . . . wittily describ[ing] the socioeconomic signifiers of redneckdom . . . its all here.” —BookPage
The classic Bubba figure is portrayed in Japanese-style verse, addressing the whole spectrum of redneck culture from RVs and Wal-Mart to monster trucks, and hunting.
