Fie, fie, what happened to my review? Down the Bayou Teche....so here we go again! It must have had something to do with those Half-Mammals or the Confederate in the Attic... If you are a Southerner, this book will ring with truth, because Mr. Singleton's characters are so obviously around the block, if not next door. If you know that prosperity can be measured in the number of cars you have up on blocks in the FRONT yard, you're in the neighborhood. If you're afraid to get of I-95 between the Virginia border and Florida, or I-10 between the Louisiana border and Houston, this is the book for you. Or, if you took I-64 thinking you'd go through West Virginia and turned around where it ended (Fie, Senator Byrd!)...you need to get right with Dixie. I could hardly recommend Mr. Singleton's stories higher--up with Confederates in the Attic (nonfiction), or Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil (possibly fiction). His characters refer to Nietzche, get regular calls from the...
An entertaining, if unusual collection of stories by one of my favorite Southern authors. While I agree with some of the other reviewers that some of the stories are exceptionally offbeat, I find the quirkiness enjoyable. I don't know if it says more about Singleton or about me, that I recognized an awful lot of his characters in the book, as members of my extended family... a fun read.
The stories are kooky and unusual but somehow believable. They vary from very funny to just plain odd. This is fiction that has a strong regional or small-town appeal. Singleton has found his quirky voice and uses it to good effect. Good dry wit. All the stories did not appeal to me equally but I found this to be a good read as flew across the country.
