Historically interesting and laugh out loud funny. Very Southern and a little naughty. "Folks" is a contemporary, historical novel that focuses on the Southwestern United States, primarily West Texas, from the turn of the 20th Century through the mid-1950's; with some contemporary flashbacks. Follow three quirky and dysfunctional generations of neighboring communities in Southwest Texas as they each survive the struggles and challenges that life in the 20th century presents them, in their own unique way. Retold through the eyes of the fourth generation, Avery Devereux, who announces to the entire community from the podium of the crowded, grade-school auditorium, "My name is Avery Devereux. I am the daughter of Orson and Katherine Devereux. We are descended from a long line of famous pirates and whores." Out of the mouths of babes unfolds a unique perspective on regional survival set against the backdrop of world history. "Folks" is a contemporary, historical novel that focuses on the Southwestern United States, primarily West Texas, from the turn of the 20th Century through the mid-1950's; with some contemporary flashbacks. Follow the dreamy Devereux's, who marry as young, idealistic teenagers and struggle to raise a family through the hardships of the Great Depression, Dust Bowl and World War I and come of age through the immigration changes of the 1950's. The Hardesty's who are the pillars of the Southwest ranching and oil industries. And the Smoot's, who live on the dark and wild side of through generations of prostitution and drug trafficking. This story is full of heart, history, and humor. It does contain sexual and adult themes and is only suitable for adults.
