About the Book

Little America is a modern Oedipal romp through hilarious adventures as the major characters race westward toward their destinies in Little America, Wyoming, in the bicentennial year of 1976.

Orville Hollinday has always struggled to both please and get even with his father, Senior, who constantly belittles him. Orville keeps trying to blow up Senior’s Cadillacs. Senior just doesn’t notice.

He moves to Little America to find among things, a girl just like the girl, Flora, who married his father. He doesn’t know that Senior and Flora, each with a different partner, will ultimately make surprise appearances in Wyoming.
