Work Shirts for MadmenWork Shirts for Madmen by George Singleton

My rating: 3 of 5 stars


Harp Spillman is an artist who has spent much of his life drinking. After a run-in with the national Republican party, he, with the support (and perhaps more) of his wife Raylou, sets out to quit drinking. The novel doesn't have much of a plot; it's more like a string of events set against a crazy rural South backdrop as Harp struggles to stay away from booze. That said, some of the vignettes are laugh-out-loud funny and some of them are sad or poignant. The structure makes it hard to get into (I put the book down several times before returning to it), but overall it's engaging .
