Publisher's Summary

The Horse in My Garage and Other Stories is a hilarious addition to Patrick F. McManus’s existing work in humor. The author weighs in on his childhood, everyday life, and outdoor tales with his typical exaggerated commentary that will elicit a belly laugh from all types of listeners.
Read about the antics of Patrick’s friends Rancid Crabtree and Retch Sweeney in such stories as “Shaping Up for the Hunt” and “Bear Hunters”. McManus plays off the recent obsession with hoarders in his surprising story “The Lady Who Kept Things”. In the titular story, meet Patrick’s horse, Huckleberry, and enjoy the experience of all the problems that come along with owning your own horse - or keeping him in the garage.
Other great stories include “Catch-And-Eaters”, about the importance of a forked stick when fishing; “$7000 TV Historical Extravaganza”, a look at one director’s loose interpretation of historical accuracy and political correctness; “A Lake Too Far”, concerning the woes of Patrick and his wife, Bun, on a fateful birding trip in Australia; and “Chicken Chronicles”, which involves Patrick’s memory of wandering around naked in the chicken yard when guests came to call.
So pull up a chair, sit back, and enjoy laughing to the hilarious adventures of Patrick F. McManus in The Horse in My Garage and Other Stories.

Audible Editor Reviews

Sean Pratt’s lively delivery of Patrick F. McManus’ humorous collection The Horse in My Garage and Other Stories creates a strong rapport with the listener. His pleasant voice is well suited to the funny material. McManus’s stories cover his personal history (including his friendships with Rancid Crabtree and Retch Sweeney), as well as his obsessions, most recently with hoarders. He tells of the problems of keeping a horse in the garage, and confesses to an instance where he traipsed around naked outdoors while he had guests.

WE REALLY ENJOY PATRICK MCMANUS!

As much as I like Mr. McManus, I just could not finish listening to this book. I tried several times. I think the reader would be great with a novel, but after hearing other McManus books read out loud, this was just droll and boring. We've read all of his books out loud as a family so I was hoping for a winner. I'm sorry, I really tried to enjoy it. Read it yourself and laugh out loud!

Humor to relate to.

This book takes us back to the country experiences most of us have experienced at least once in our lifetime. Written in a style and read by an actor that leave no doubt that the stories and characters are authentic, it's a treat on audible media.
