Steve Bartholomewabout this book: "Gopherville" was the author's first novel. It was intended to be a political satire on the then current administration and government security programs. The story involves a geezer who eats roadkill and would like to overthrow the government. It also includes some autobiographical elements which I won't go into here. Suffice it to say that the town in this story has much in common with the place where I actually live. (The characters, however, are purely fictional. I have to say that.)
While I believed this book's relevance as satire would be short term, it hasn't turned out that way. I have been told the book is funny. People actually buy it and read it. I am always amazed when they do. I hope that if you too should do so, you will be equally amazed by the author's talent and brilliance, and write a fairly good review. At least I don't think it has any outrageous spelling mistakes.
