Description

In this masterful debut, Martin Clark proves to be the heir apparent of great Southern raconteurs and the envy of more seasoned novelists as he takes us on a frantic tour of the modern south. Hung over, beaten by the unforgiving sun, bitter at his estranged wife, and dreading the dayA's docket of petty criminal cases, Judge Evers Wheeling is in need of something on the morning he's accosted by Ruth Esther English. Ruth Esther's strange story certainly is something, and Judge Wheeling finds himself in uncharted territory. Reluctantly agreeing to help Ruth Esther retrieve some stolen money, he recruits his pot-addled brother and a band of merry hangers-on for the big adventure. Raucous road trips, infidelity, suspected killers, winning Lotto tickets, drunken philosophical rants, and at least one naked woman tied to a road sign ensue in The Many Aspects of Mobile Home Living, one part legal thriller, one part murder mystery, and all parts all wild.

Professional reviews

"Originally released in 2000, this legal thriller is now available in audio, albeit with a narration as uneven as its plotline. The meandering story features Evers Wheeling, a drug- and alcohol-addled judge in North Carolina who, in existential disarray, jumps down the rabbit hole when he gets involved with a woman who is searching for a lost inheritance. Henry Strozier's voice is well matched to the crotchety Wheeling--his dialogue and even his occasional hallucinations are well delivered. Strozier deftly handles the abrupt shifts in tone, as well, as when Wheeling watches a sunrise or his brother makes surprising revelations. While the performance breaks down in other areas--female voices often sound unnatural, other characters' voices lack focus, and some background noises come through--the roller coaster of a story has high points that make it worth listening to.
