Editors Note 1 Set in the town of Gruel, South Carolina, this first novel by George Singleton, master of the comic short story, is the tale of a young man named Novel (his brother's name is James; his sister's is Joyce), a professional snake handler who stumbles across strange doings while he sits in a motel room writing his autobiography. As he struggles to recount his life story, he uncovers-and finds himself starring in-a decades-old town secret, one that can blow him and his fellow citizens sky-high. Funny as only George Singleton can be, full of Southern mischief and wit, Novel is a crazed and crazy fictional whirlwind of drinking, motel-living, art-forgery-committing, pool-playing redneck charm.
Editors Note 2 Struggling to write his autobiography from a motel room, a professional snake handler named Novel inadvertently uncovers a decades-old town secret with potentially explosive ramifications for his neighbors. By the author of the Half-Mammals of Dixie. A first novel. Reprint. 25,000 first printing.
