When Emma and Kip Dupree bought their first home together, they got a lot more than they bargained for. They wanted to get out of the city and get on with their lives on the quiet cul-de-sac. Instead, an object of obsession brings their lives to a screeching halt.
Who is the woman living next door?
Why does she do the curious things she does?
Why do Emma and Kip feel like their lives have been so disrupted?
How do they get her to stop?
The Duprees are only sure about one thing: the social contract must be upheld at all costs.
A morbidly obese, legionnaires disease riddled hillbully with 3 yappy poop-machines for dogs finally pushes her neighbors, Emma and Kip, over the edge. They can’t take it anymore. They need to deliver a strong message to get through the idea of neighborly propriety and social graces if they are going to continue to live in their new home. That is, if they can get across the Mason-Dixon Line of dog poo.
I dig Andersen Prunty’s stuff, but would have liked this one to be expanded a bit. I would be interested to see where Prunty would have taken the subject matter it in a slightly longer format.
As usual, the writing was very well done with some truly laugh out loud and retchable moments, just as I have come to expect from the author. 4.5 Amazon Stars!
I dig Andersens narration too. I think it brings a lot to the stories.
