When I saw Days of the Endless Corvette on the Barnes and Noble new fiction table, I was intrigued by the title and yes, the jacket cover. I read the synopsis and bought the book. As a lover of southern fiction and writers, I immediately became "hooked" into Man Martin's story. I laughed out loud, got choked up, and felt sad when I had to leave Deepstep, Georgia. When you finish this novel, the folks of Humble County will long visit you: like a favorite relative. A wonderful first novel by a new voice in southern literature.
Hilarious, innovative, and at times heartbreaking, this coming-of-age debut novel is for all lovers of great Southern literature.
