Synopsis : Set in the town of Gruel, South Carolina, this first novel by George Singleton, master of the comic short story, is the tale of a young man named Novel (his brother's name is James; his sister's is Joyce), a professional snake handler who stumbles across strange doings while he sits in a motel room writing his autobiography. As he struggles to recount his life story, he uncovers-and finds himself starring in-a decades-old town secret, one that can blow him and his fellow citizens sky-high. Funny as only George Singleton can be, full of Southern mischief and wit, Novel is a crazed and crazy fictional whirlwind of drinking, motel-living, art-forgery-committing, pool-playing redneck charm.

Quatrième de couverture: Praise for WHY DOGS CHASE CARS

"Singleton's hilarious insights come early and often."-- The New York Times Book Review

"Singleton's style lies outside the usual briar patch. It's a cross between, say, Ralph Ellison and Molly Ivins . . . Singleton isn't just a killer at the hilarious one-liner, he can keep riffing on something good paragraph after paragraph, page after page."-- The Atlanta Journal Constitution


"Singleton's relentlessly offbeat stories are a miasma of flea markets, palm readers, bowling alleys, and alligators, offering a disturbingly askew--at times, downright surreal--vision of the South."-- Entertainment Weekly

"George Singleton is a madman. He's also one of the most talented American writers the South has turned out in decades."-- The Post and Courier (Charleston, SC)

"Absolutely hilarious. It reads like a combination of the wry humor of Eudora Welty, the bizarre creations of Flannery O'Connor, and the crazy denizens of Edward Swift's Splendora."-- Richmond Times-Dispatch


"George Singleton has the singular voice of a down-home schizophrenic. His stories are crazy mad fun."-- Playboy

"George Singleton writes about the rural South without sentimentality or stereotype but with plenty of sharp-witted humor . . . A raconteur of trends, counter-trends, obsessions and odd characters."-- Morning Edition, NPR
