Publisher's Summary

Dot waitresses on roller skates at the Dairy Bob, doesn't care for smoking, at least partly on account of her dad having never returned from a cigarette run, and carries on the family tradition of philosophizing. Life hasn't done her any favors in her 17 years so far. But if there was ever a heroine built for turning things upside down and seeing what shakes out, it's Dot. Determined to find out who she is and why she's the way she is, an opportunity presents itself when her heretofore-unknown uncle suddenly moves his camper into the front yard.

As in his classic novels The Bottoms and The Magic Wagon, Lansdale instills place with character and character with place. Here is an overlooked world and a cast of real folks that prove unforgettable, all rendered in one of American fiction's most authentic voices.

    "Great story "

    Excellent match between voice and story. It's as if the book was written specifically about and for Ms. Lansdale to read aloud. A short and bittersweet tale of adolescence and growing up poor but doing fine in spite of that.

    "My Favorite Lansdale Novel to Date"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Fender Lizards to be better than the print version?

    Yes! Kasey Lansdale's narration breathes life and soul into this wonderful novel. She is perfect!


    What other book might you compare Fender Lizards to and why?

    It is just as funny as the Hap and Leonard books. In this one, though, the author has nailed the female perspective.


    What does Kasey Lansdale bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Kasey Lansdale is the voice of East Texas! Her narration is beyond perfection!


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I was moved by every moment of this book. It is funny, irreverent, and the characterizations are unforgettable.


    Any additional comments?

    I love this book and I will listen to it again. And again. It is so sweet and hilarious. Although there are legions of imitators, there is only one Joe Lansdale. I hope he revisits the characters of FENDER LIZARDS soon. Of all of his amazing novels, this one is my very favorite. Kasey Lansdale brought this novel to life and is perfectly suited to the reading of this novel. I cannot praise the novel and its narration highly enough!
