Praise for the Book
Winner of the 2006 Noble (not Nobel) Book Prize
'Imagine Wizard of Oz and Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy smashed together and taking place in a hollow in the hills of West Virginia.'
Adicus Ryan Garton, Editor, AtomJack
'quirky, profane, disturbing.'
'Look in on a dysfunctional family, poverty, child abuse, and the thought processes of a young girl turning the corner from childhood to adolescence, then put them all together in a surreal setting that looks at our society from a distinctly different viewpoint. You'll enjoy the ride with Lacy Dawn and friends and family, but don't expect the ride to be without bumps and enough food for thought to last you a long time.'
Darrell Bain, Bobbing Around
'Author Robert Eggleton uses a casual style to create a sometimes funny, sometimes disturbing picture of a young woman who believes she is responsible for fixing her parents--and who manages to do so. The gradual humanization of Buddy serves as a microcosm for the entire story, which involves the gradual humanization of everyone Lacy Dawn comes into contact with (including her dog, a piece of firewood, and multiple cockroaches).'
