Someone To Crawl Back To is a novel-in-stories, a collection of hearts in search of what they've always wanted or what they've eternally lost. Set in small town South Carolina, those hearts belong to wrecker drivers, drive-thru fast food workers, college professors, bartenders, insurance and mobile homes salesmen. Their common ground is The Paradise Lounge. The death of aSomeone To Crawl Back To is a novel-in-stories, a collection of hearts in search of what they've always wanted or what they've eternally lost. Set in small town South Carolina, those hearts belong to wrecker drivers, drive-thru fast food workers, college professors, bartenders, insurance and mobile homes salesmen. Their common ground is The Paradise Lounge. The death of a marriage, Joshua and Rene Serverance's, forms the spine of the book, but included in this small community of seekers are George Scarborough and his softball-playing wife; Evander Baker, who helps his sister bury a bag of chocolate chip cookies near the septic line; and Warren Oxendine, whose wife buys a vibrator at a yard sale. Structured more like a Robert Altman film than a traditional novel, reading SOMEONE TO CRAWL BACK TO is like going to The Paradise Lounge for a drink, slipping inside a patron's skin, going home with that person, then coming back to The Paradise and leaving with another sojourner of love. Boson Books also features a screen play by Phillip Gardner called Necessary Evils.For an author bio, photo, and a sample read visit bosonbooks.com....

    I chose this for my Senior project because I was looking for something that would parallel Steinbeck's "The Pastures of Heaven" in some ways. This book is basically perfect for that. The story cycle is really tightly structured, very similarly to the model "Winesburg, Ohio" we're studying in class. It's disgusting in some places, heart-wrenching in some places, gut-bustingly funny in some places. The characters are believable small-town Carolina people, the stories are sometimes commonplace, sometimes outlandish, but always strung together with a sense of truth and wry humor.
