Reluctantly taking up residence at an assisted-living facility outside San Francisco in 2023, Guy Fontaine realizes that his aging-hippie fellow residents are living out their golden years in perpetual tribute to the 1960s and becomes involved in a mediacircus involving a resident's illegal pet cat, the facility's domineering administrator, and governor Drew Barrymore
Lydia by Tim Sandlin( Book )

Picking up the characters from his GroVant trilogy, published 15 years ago, Sandlin returns to the small Wyoming town where it all began. Narrator Sam Callahan is managing the Virgin Birth Home for Unwed Mothers, while his aimless adult daughter, Shannon, is having a nervous breakdown; and his mother, Lydia, is on parole after time served for attempting to poison Ronald Reagan's dog. Lydia's parole requires writing the life story of centenarian, Oly Pedersen, but then she hatches a scheme for a road trip to California (taking along Oly) so Roger, a young man unofficially adopted by Sam, might discover his origins. Meanwhile, the terrifying Leroy, who dumped Roger off on friends years ago, is hunting him now, believing Roger must die for the universe to achieve balance
Sorrow floats by Tim Sandlin( Book )
12 editions published between 1992 and 2010 in English and held by 589 libraries worldwide
Maurey Pierce Talbot is too smart, too feisty, and too funny to be making such a mess of her twenty-two-year-old life. Despite denials - always clever, often hilarious - Maurey is rapidly becoming the town drunk. But on the May day she takes one drink too many and accidentally misplaces her baby (thereby giving her husband all the excuse he needs to boot her out), even Maurey has to admit she's hit bottom. So when two old reprobates, AA zealots both, turn up and offer her a ride in exchange for gas money, the legal cover of her still-valid driver's license, and an old horse trailer owned by her late and much-lamented dad (to haul the Coors they plan to sell illegally in the South), Maurey agrees. And so begins one of the oddest hegiras in American roadtrip history as this less-than-cordial threesome sets out to cover twenty-five hundred miles of good-ol'-boy '70s America. What Maurey finds as she crosses the country will turn a trip into a quest and change a girl into a woman

Kelly Palamino's engagingly idiosyncratic voice falls somewhere between On the Road and Bright Lights, Big City. He's the Lone Ranger in love, riding out the rough patches on a Thorazine habit.-People At twenty-nine, Kelly Palamino's a little off-kilter but settled into his career of professional dishwasher. His big, blond, ex-hippie wife has left him for good. So it's with no particular purpose that Kelly positions himself on his porch across the street from an Episcopal church in Jackson, Wyoming, to witness a singular sight: a dark-haired bride in full regalia punting a football over the rectory before turning resolutely to walk down the aisle. It's love at first sight for Kelly, and he'll do absolutely anything and everything to get his girl ... Kelly is full-tilt Gonzo crazy. But crazy people can make good protagonists, particularly when they narrate in their own uniquely whacked-out voice.-Atlanta Journal-Constitution Tim Sandlin's first novel is impressive ... [He] may be compared to Tom Robbins ... but Sandlin appears to be more subtle ... a fun read.-San Diego Union-Tribune An anarchic novel that is by turns wryly observant and outrageously slapstick ... a novel that shows wit and strength and a sweet sensibility toward the loser in everyone.-Kansas City Star A potent cocktail mixture of Jack Kerouac, Tom Robbins, and David Lynch topped off with a western twist.-Denver Post
