J.E.Moores has one crazy looking family tree. On its branches he airs his mother's dirty laundry with a sharp wit, setting her bouffant hairdo into a tizzy. Meet Grampy, a rascal who told tall tales about Snotgrass, Swamp Boggers, Philly Lou Birds, Side Hill Gougers and a Yupapotamus on long drives through the backwoods of Maine. Meet Mammy, a redhead beauty who smuggled subversive underground comics to her grandchild from the Adults Only section of the Rockland Greyhound Station newstand. Meet forgetful Kenneth and his pet turkey that followed him everywhere, the neighbor Hamburger Head, and Cecil the Seal Boy from the Union Fair Freak Show. And don't forget the farmhouse ghost, Old Grandma. No family secret is safe in this honest slice of Americana, spanning five generations of Mainers. A hilarious epic that gets the reader laughing out loud and then hits you deep with an awareness of humanity's beautiful flaws. You may find that this family is not too different from yours.
