Life in the small town of Poso Creek is more than meets the eye, with a collection of characters and events to make you both laugh and cry. Part fact and part fiction, this unique memoir/novel is largely based on real people, events and experiences.
A Mennonite farmer’s young son sinfully undresses a girl for the first time, only to find that heaven is not over there, but under hand instead. The unforgettable physics teacher C. Goodal Smith, truly a rational man, deals first with an unruly class while later a most irrational waitress turns his rational mind into mush. A quartet of fervent evangelists, each in his own indelible fashion, dedicates themselves to saving a perfectly decent town from the fires of hell, while God Almighty seems intent upon another path. Two adolescents come of age under a Sycamore tree behind the barn, and the children of Poso Creek play nasty in both common and rare forms. You will even meet a gay farm cat who stalks steers while banging mama cats on the sly.
These and other marvels await you in The Undressing Of Kathy Howard where a both poignant and humorous excursion into rural Americana proves once again that the way things were is the way things are. Enjoy the ride!
