Someone To Crawl Back To

Someone To Crawl Back To is a novel-in-stories, a collection of hearts in search of what they’ve always wanted or what they’ve eternally lost. Set in small town South Carolina, those hearts belong to wrecker drivers, drive-thru fast food workers, college professors, bartenders, insurance and mobile homes salesmen. Their common ground is The Paradise Lounge.

The death of a marriage, Joshua and Rene Serverance’s, forms the spine of the book, but included in this small community of seekers are George Scarborough and his softball-playing wife; Evander Baker, who helps his sister bury a bag of chocolate chip cookies near the septic line; and Warren Oxendine, whose wife buys a vibrator at a yard sale.

Structured more like a Robert Altman film than a traditional novel, reading Someone To Crawl Back To is like going to The Paradise Lounge for a drink, slipping inside a patron’s skin, going home with that person, then coming back to The Paradise and leaving with another sojourner of love.
