If you want to understand America, forget Michael Moore, George W Bush or the Simpsons - get acquainted with Otis Lee Crenshaw, the sublime creation of Rich Hall, one of the funniest, smartest and most acute American wits alive' Stephen Fry
The memoir of Otis Lee Crenshaw, Rich Hall's Perrier Award-winning alter ego
'My Old Man's name was Jack Daniels Crenshaw. No surprise what he liked to drink. As a very small child I remember teething - cryin' out savagely for relief. Eventually he would appear over my crib and rub Jack Daniels on his gums until he fell asleep.' Married six times, all to women named Brenda, Otis Lee Crenshaw's bourbon-fuelled odyssey takes him from the high mountains of East Tennessee to the bottom of the music charts. A man not above faking his own death to sell more records, this is his not quite true story of romance, recidivism, country music, and an unshakeable belief in Marriage at First Sight.
Why buy from World of Books
Our excellent value books literally don't cost the earth
Hall uses his creation to explore the US of trailer parks, petty crime, insane money-making notions and harsh class divisions. He's pretty darn funny about it too . . . this is an intelligent and inspired book * MORNING STAR * As funny as his hilarious stand-up. * ZOO * Like reading a transcript of The Jerry Springer Show- hilarious. * ICE MAGAZINE * As happy conforming to white trash cliches as he is subverting them, Perrier award winner Hall has proved his pen is just as sharp as his mouth. * BIG ISSUE *
