Overview

Soon to be a major motion picture called "The Right Kind of Wrong," starring Ryan Kwanten from True Blood

"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
