In Summerlin, North Carolina, it is - quite literally - a race to the finish. Glenn and Laura Bales lie dying in the same house, and although Laura is more interested in her Whitman's Sampler chocolates, and Glenn in whatever happened to his first wife, Evelyn, their children have their eyes unswervingly fixed on the inheritance. Who will get the money, and what it will mean for this unusual little Southern community is a richly comic novel about endings.

    " What could be more delightful than a full cast of Southern characters each eccentric in his own way. The story is told in first person by the whole cast so advances from all viewpoints. dying families and wills bring out the best and the worst. Very enjoyable book. "

    " He's irreverently funny...laugh out loud funny. One can tell he is a southerner....talking about the author here. "

    " Edgerton is a hoot! He tells stories from the viewpoints of multiple characters, with each character's perspecvtive on the story. His insights into the human condition through light-hearted prose is keen. This author is probably an acquired taste, but quite entertaining. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Doug | 3/13/2013

    " Clyde Edgerton is one of the most brilliant contemporary writers about the American South. His characters and use of dialogue captures my experience both from my family roots and many years living in the South. "

    " Clyde Edgerton has just the right humor for his subjects to keep them from being to precious. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jen | 11/24/2012

    " Edgerton's characters are so evocative of my grandparents' generation born and raised in the South. The humor is spot on, and this was a light and fun read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mimi | 8/21/2012

    " Set in North Carolina, the legacy and inheritance a family member leaves behind and how it impacts the family. I loved this quote "whatever you leave behind is your history, and it better be good because you're history longer than you're fact" "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Katie | 2/19/2012

    " delightfully quirky following bizarre family members relationships and conversations with each other and with deceased family members. very funny description of n old woman eating chocolate bon bons representing people she knows... "

    " The same combination of appreciation for & satire of southern characters & culture as Rainey & Killer Diller, but a somewhat less interesting story. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tony | 12/24/2011

    " great southern voice. told in sections by alternating cast of characters a la "As I Lay Dying." not quite as deep(?) as "Raney" or hilarious as "Walking Across Egypt" but a good 'un. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ellen | 8/11/2011

    " Clyde Edgerton is a national treasure; he brings to mind Eudora Welty, among others. This short novel is a little gem of southern fiction: pie-baking aunts, good ole' boys, and even a farm-raised college professor, all with a comic/sad combination of ignorance and wisdom. "
