Boonville“A brilliant new voice twitchy corny sly cackling and sad but most of all racing with vitality and goosing you to keep up Boonville is the creepy and hilarious coming of age story the territory deserves not your parents’ Vineland but your own”  Jonathan LethemBoonville is the story of John Gibson the reluctant heir of an alcoholic grandmother who fled the normalcy of her own “American family” to live in the redwoods surrounded north The writing is highly virtuosic You can't help being impressed by Anderson's skill with the language and his fertile imagination But all that talent is exhausting And when you strip away all the colorful characters and their eccentric interactions there really isn't much story left I don't see that he has published a second novel in the seven years since Boonville but I hope one is in the works one that is focused on the reader's experience than the writer's performance It could be killer

Ern California hole in the wall town of Boonville where she is known as the “suirrel lady” In her will she leaves John her decrepit cabin Needing a change from the pastel and air conditioned life in Miami John ditches his girlfriend and condo and heads to Boonville to claim his inheritance He soon discovers it is not the hippie free loving town he assumed it was and the locals with the exception of Sarah McKay a commune reared hippie by ass Too funny The people who don't get this book have obviously never been to Mendocino County OK so perhaps the unbelievably truthful and wacky descriptions of the California locals makes it a bit unreachable for the average Joe and I agree sometimes the characters lack depth but boy was this funny
