Staff Reviews

Brilliant! Each chapter of this first novel is written from the viewpoint of a different teen attending an end of school year party. There is the cool kid, the wallflower, the athlete and the rest, and each chapter continues and expands the story, by not only giving you one characters’ personal experience, but their view of their peers.

“The Lonely Polygamist is the story of 45-year-old Golden Richards, a hapless soul, whose four wives, 28 children, and one paramour run his life. By turns laugh-out-loud funny and hauntingly sad, this novel is a big, fat, satisfying read that will make you reconsider what it means to be part of a family. Plus, it contains the naughtiest, goofiest 11-year-old boy who will ever break your heart.”
— Roberta Dyer, Broadway Books, Portland, OR
