Double Baloney ~~TWO~~ (a sort of sequel of 240 brief and quite standardly rhymed items to the same author's recent **Double Baloney**) has a noticeably divergent formulaic aspect. At the top of every textual page of Double Baloney ~~TWO~~ should be a limerick that perhaps none too galumphingly forms an entire sweeping sentence; at the bottom of each textual page should be an I LIKE sort of couplet the book's author awhile back invented and now very much enjoys composing. Each limerick and every concomitant couplet might seem specially linked in that the title of each limerick is included in the title and the opening line of its accompanying I LIKE couplet. The author's entire aspiration had much to do with grammatical excellence as possibly helping produce strong semblances of wit.

~Double Baloney~ is a compilation of 130 pages of mock-haiku and pseudolimericks, rather baroquely written so that each item is one relatively sweeping 'sentence.' On every page is one mock-haiku plus one psuedolimerick, and the individual items on each page have quite identical titles. A very strong attempt has been made to push the language of the individual pieces toward much grammatical correctness, so that the final verbal effects might seem lapidary if not absolutely epigrammatic. Much entertainment supposedly may be had in terms of noticing how the English language is played with.

Somebody feels threatened by Aggie's commitment to researching and writing the family history. Leaving threatening phone calls, emails, and faxes, the bad guy doesn't give up. Hiring a killer, a neophyte bad guy, this stalker trails Aggie and her double cousin to France, and on a river cruise, and then on a cross-country drive. The problem-what sort of scandal occured in the recent or distant past to send a family member on such a deadly quest? What could Aggie possibly uncover that's so awful as to require murder most foul? Aggie's research takes her and Lisa back to the past on a historical adventure, where we see the settling of the west, particularly Wyoming, through the eyes of the cousins' great-great-grandmothers. Meanwhile, in this day and age, one wonders what in the world possessed another cousin to marry a real loser, a teller turned bank VP after marrying the secretary of state. Also, Aggie's generation of cousins are bent on playing cupid, except they're in conflict about whom and why. Should they push Senator Steve Norman at Cousin Nasty, or devise romantic scenarios for Steve with Nicole, Aggie's granddaughter? These two sub-plots get in the way of Aggie's quest, one of which contributes to her search and her desperate efforts to save her own life, and the other sub-plot of which must inevitably foil the primary plot. (Aggie's Double Dollies, more than any other of the Aggie Morissey mysteries, helps to unravel the family saga)

Enter the distinctly off-kilter world of Don "Wendell" Brush, an unemployed Tennessee electrician with a penchant for throwing back a few beers before lunch. Mary, his long-suffering wife of seven years, has left him -- or is trying to. Heartsick at the thought of losing her, Don beats her out the door, reasoning that if he leaves, Mary will have to stay behind in their ramshackle house to take care of their dog and cat. On the strength of this logic, Don finds himself out on the street with only his decrepit old truck, the shirt on his back, and nothing to do but avoid home. Approximately Heaven is a marvelously rambunctious debut, by turns melancholy and uproarious, about one hapless man's pursuit of happiness -- or at least another six-pack -- preferably both. The novel charts Don's amiably clumsy attempts to improve his situation, beginning with his decision to take a road trip with his friend Dove Ellender -- a retired, chain-drinking ex-felon with emphysema -- to Mississippi to deliver some furniture. Or maybe there's something besides furniture in the trailer behind Dove's leaky half-ton green-and-white 1969 Ford truck, but Don isn't asking and Dove's not telling. Will Don find his heaven -- or something close to it? Will Mary give him another chance (his fourth, actually)? If heaven is a house that is square, level, and plumb -- with a loving family inside -- then for Don, even a sober hope of these things would be enough In the course of his hero's grand misadventures, prizewinning short-story writer James Whorton traverses the broken white line between the absurd and the desperately poignant. Fans of Richard Russo will want to raise a glass -- or at least crack open a can of Natural Light. Featuring an endearingly flawed protagonist, dead-perfect dialogue, and a mordant eye for small-town southern life, Approximately Heaven is about the paradise we long for and the approximations for which we settle. It heralds the arrival of a major -- and heaven-sent -- new literary talent.
