    Joe Goffman was fifteen years out from his sleepy hometown when he wrote Bush Falls, a searing critique of its people and institutions. The book was a runaway best seller, and led to an even more successful movie. Now, however, Joe's got a problem. His father has suffered a stroke, and that means that Joe has to go back to his birthplace after having successfully antagonized every person living there. Can Joe survive the reservoirs of hatred that have been waiting to pour down upon him? Just maybe.

    FanB14 says: "Sarcasm Reigns Supreme"
    "Well-worth listening to"
    Overall

    The themes of acceptance, responsibility, and letting go of the past are more related to lifestage than gender, and I found this a well-written treatment of them. I found myself unusally touched by dreadfully painful things that happen to the characters, particularly the young ones. The characters are well drawn, and rarely one-dimensional. All in all, I found it an absorbing listen with a nice balance of humor and poignancy.
