Publisher's Summary

In this masterful debut, Martin Clark proves to be the heir apparent of great Southern raconteurs and the envy of more seasoned novelists as he takes us on a frantic tour of the modern South. Hung over, beaten by the unforgiving sun, bitter at his estranged wife, and dreading the day's docket of petty criminal cases, Judge Evers Wheeling is in need of something on the morning he's accosted by Ruth Esther English.

Ruth Esther's strange story certainly is something, and Judge Wheeling finds himself in uncharted territory. Reluctantly agreeing to help Ruth Esther retrieve some stolen money, he recruits his pot-addled brother and a band of merry hangers-on for the big adventure.

Raucous road trips, infidelity, suspected killers, winning Lotto tickets, drunken philosophical rants, and at least one naked woman tied to a road sign ensue in The Many Aspects of Mobile Home Living, one part legal thriller, one part murder mystery, and all parts wild.

    Story
    "The central character is repulsive"
    Would you try another book from Martin Clark and/or Henry Strozier?

    It'd take a lot to convince me to try another book by Martin Clark. I had no problem with Strozier's performance.


    What was most disappointing about Martin Clark’s story?

    For the part of the book that I listened to (the first 2 hours), the protagonist showed himself to be nasty, self-centered, sadistic and corrupt. Maybe other readers will find his behavior humorous. I did not. And maybe later in the book he transforms into someone engaging.I'm not willing to spend my time to find out whether that's the case.


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    The performance was OK.

    "Strangest meandering story I have ever listened to"

    It was like I was trying to understand what the plot was through the entire book. That does not mean I did not enjoy the characters, I did. The performer did a good job, you always knew which character was speaking. I have been to the restaurant in Charleston, and it is exactly as described. Just a strange book.

    Story
    "Whatever...."

    is the catchphrase of the brother in this book. That's what I felt about this story in that, I could have lived without having listened to it.

    The main character was unlikable and you didn't really care if he got charged with the killing of his soon to be ex-wife.
