But its his family members that really take the cake. His daughter may be having a nervous breakdown, and his mothers just out of prison for attempting to poison the presidents dog. And when they hit the road with a geriatric, an adoptive son trying to discover his parentage, and an enraged psychopath on their tails, all hell may break loose.Fifteen years ago, Tim Sandlin concluded his Gro-Vont trilogy, a string of books that included a New York Times Notable Book and earned such accolades as funny and compelling (LA Times), zany (Cosmo), and dazzling and moving (New York Times).

But some characters call a writer back.Welcome to the ribald, rollicking, and sometimes peculiar world of Tim Sandlins GroVont, Wyoming, where family is always paramount, no matter how strange.I dont understand why your mother was in prison in the first place, Eden said.

I heard she was a feminist force for justice in America.I glanced in the rearview mirror at Gilia, staring out the window at the red cliffs along the river, pretending not to listen. It would be just like her to feed Eden that feminist force for justice in America line. Although wed been together almost ten years, I still had no clue as to when Gilia was being sarcastic. It seemed like an important thing to know.I said, Mom FedExed a poison chew toy to Ronald Reagans dog.After a moment of semi-stunned silence, Eden said, Now I see why youre so squirrelly.Praise for Tim SandlinDazzling...moving...Sams carapace is humor...

Louis Post-DispatchTim Sandlins fiction packs a punch. The writers fictional Wyoming town is a grungier version of Garrison Keillors Lake Wobegon, a community where people ponder the difference between depression and despair.-St. Louis Post-DispatchReviewers have variously compared Tim Sandlin to Jack Kerouac, Tom Robbins, Larry McMurtry, Joseph Heller, John Irving, Kurt Vonnegut, Carl Hiaasen, and a few other writers youve probably heard of.

He has published nine novels and a book of columns. He wrote eleven screenplays for hire, two of which have been made into movies. He used to write reviews for the New York Times Book Review but was fired for excessive niceness.
