"Tim Sandlin's stuff is as tight and funny as anyone doing this comedy novel thing." -Christopher Moore. "Able storytelling and an engaging cast of dysfunctional modern American pilgrims animate this winning tale of the road... Sandlin fashions a convincing tale of redemption." -Publishers Weekly (starred review) "A rousing piece of Americana...rowdy, raunchy...A total delight." -Library Journal. "Tim Sandlin's fic tion packs a punch. The writer's fictional Wyoming town is a grungier version of Garrison Keillor's Lake Wobegon." -Denver Post. "A zany road trip across America" -Cosmopolitan "Sandlin understands that black comedy is only a tiny slip away from despair, and he handles this walk without a misstep." -Dallas Morning News.
Everyone in GroVont, Wyoming, knows everybody else's business, but Maurey Pierce Talbot is practically famous around town. Sunk low since her father died, whiskey- specifically Yukon Jack-is her best friend. When she makes the mistake of a lifetime, Maurey finds herself looking up from rock bottom. So when two bumbling ex-drunks need to get cross-country with a trailer full of illegal beer, Maurey takes the wheel. Sometimes you just need to get out of town. And sometimes you need to get lost in order to get found.
