About the Book

Get an unrestricted peek inside a real life version of the TV show Frasier, if the Cranes were from Mississippi. In a fit of post 40th birthday generosity, displaced Southern Gentleman and Writer, Dusty Thompson, invites his redneck father to live with him in California. Not knowing what to expect as their life-long relationship has been very subdued, if informal, not unlike those of an English Lord and his downstairs staff, Dusty feels sure two adults can be successful roommates. However, when his Dad shows up with the largest La-Z-Boy recliner in America, and a dog named Lulu, in the back of his pick-up, Dusty realizes the only thing they have in common is oddly short legs and the belief he is adopted.
