This book is bizarre, touching, and hilarious all at the same time. From the cover...The story strikes out in two directions at once: Lucille's journey from Industry, Alabama to Hollywood, where she is determined to become a regular on the Beverly Hillbillies: and the coming-of-age of her 12-year-old nephew PeeJoe, who discovers the difference between 'white and NIgra' justice when Industry opens its new municipal swimming pool.
