I Suggest Raney!

The Raleigh News and Observer said, “Clyde Edgerton is the love child of Dave Barry and Flannery O’Connor."

Where Trouble Sleeps (1997)
In Memory of Junior (1992)
Killer Diller (1991)
The Floatplane Notebooks (1988)
Walking Across Egypt (1987)
Raney (1985)

What a lineage! O'Connor is one of my favorites. I have just placed a reserve on Raney.

I've read all of these except "In Memory of Junior" My favorite are his first two, Raney and Walking Across Egypt, but I also liked Where Trouble Sleeps.

A cross between Barry and O'Connor? Sounds right up my alley!

Hope y'all like him. I could just shoot myself in the foot for not seeing Edgerton last month when he was in Oxford. I promise, he is one of my all time favorites. Can authors have groupies?!? :D
