Best-selling novelist Clyde Edgerton is the author of Raney and Walking Across Egypt.

Lil Olive, the leader of a group of feisty elderly women, decides that she is restless at the Rosehaven nursing home. Lil and her friends need some excitement in their dull lives. So, the group of women steal a car and hit the road in search of adventures, which include hilariously unforgettable trips to the local CVS and Hardee's, and end with an encounter with the law.

    " For anyone reading these, a note: I'm penning these reviews to help me with my writing -- what I like, don't like, what stays with me after a read. Maybe it will help you too. I found this title on a reading list for a writing seminar in Wisconsin that I didn't attend (a good place for recommendations!) This is the story of a middle-aged bachelor, Carl, who patiently looks after his Aunt Lil at a convalescent center. Aunt Lil wants to go home and not give up driving. (A side note: Lilly and Carl were my parents' names. Hmmm. Wonder what that means?) What is different about this book is to have the setting and most characters be elderly. What's also interesting is how the songs Carl talks about and writes throughout the book are all listed at the back. Also that Carl's high-pitched voice and his attempt to bring it lower is his weakness and vulnerable point that makes us care about him. "

    " Set in North CArolina, which is definitely southern. Not one of my favorite Clyde Edgerton books-- words i never thought I'd utter. Maybe reading about geriatric antics hits too close to home now. However, it did make me recall all those family meals at the Piccadilly... "

    " Extremely close to home for me! Funny...but I didn't really like most of the characters, and it was more than a little depressing. "

    " I do like Clyde's books, didn't care for the ending but loved the humor in this lovely view of old folks. "
