This book is a wonderfully fun read, especially if you value handwriting. Read the list on page 32 for an idea of Hersher’s wit, then flip back to page 3 for a nostalgic account of a family’s handwriting. If you like those, you’ll enjoy this bizarre and informative book!
May 2010The Lonely Polygamist is the story of 45-year-old Golden Richards, a hapless soul, whose four wives, 28 children, and one paramour run his life. By turns laugh-out-loud funny and hauntingly sad, this novel is a big, fat, satisfying read that will make you reconsider what it means to be part of a family. Plus, it contains the naughtiest, goofiest 11-year-old boy who will ever break your heart. -- Roberta Dyer, Broadway Books, Portland, OR
