Veteran memoirist, television writer, and novelist Kim Powers brings a wicked sense of humor and an unexpected tenderness to this book which could be the very unlikely love-child of Mark Childress (Crazy in Alabama) and Alice Seibold (The Lovely Bones). This book pays homage to the movies of the 1960s and vividly conjures the machinations of small-town Texas. Readers realize early on that the young man who has lost his mother just as he is coming of age is resourceful, clever, and gay, though no single theme in the novel is overplayed. The result is a suspenseful, hometown novel that is funny, wise, and warm. Native Texan Kim Powers brings a steady hand to all proceedings, including a ghostly mother, a wicked stepmother, a clueless father, and a full cast of misfits—all orchestrated within a lively plot which is anything but predictable. Powers has a following of readers from his early works, many influential supporters in the television industry and LGBTQ+ community, and an active online presence. Powers will have a publicist to help place media appearances nationally in both television and print.
