In this collection of stories you'll meet a bunch of memorable guys including Lonesome Shorty, a cowpoke torn between the proud life in the saddle and the comforts of warm apartments and women; Buddy, the teen-age leper in Sioux Falls; Earl Grey, the great tea inventor and former Republican child; Casey, at the bat in Mudville again; Dionysus, the god of wine; and Roy Bradley, boy broadcaster.Brilliantly funny, touching, and acute, these stories reveal the perilous situation of guys today.
"With his inimitable style and recognizable voice, this is one author who really should read aloud his own work." (AudioFile)
"Brilliant and imaginative...Recommended for anyone who's a guy, who knows a guy, or enjoys good writing and a good laugh." (Houston Post)
"The author, perhaps as famous for his euphonious voice as for his writing, narrates well." (Library Journal)
