Not Just Another Grouchy Grammarian

Musings about language, books, grammar, and writing in general

Review: There’s a (Slight) Chance I Might Be Going to Hell: A Novel of Sewer Pipes, Pageant Queens, and Big Trouble, by Laurie Notaro

My friend Jan read a bit from this at the Virtual Silent Book Club, and I knew I had to read it.

It’s delightfully funny, and it so captures some “small town” attitudes, as well as the feelings of a fish out of water, whose every attempt to make new friends goes hilariously astray. Oh, yeah, and there is a cold case mystery to be resolved, too.

I want to read everything Ms. Laurie Notaro (who is not, as far as I can make out, related to Tig Notaro) has written. Anyone whose book can keep me laughing and hold my attention for an entire day is someone whose writing is clearly worth pursuing!
