About the Book (Excerpts & Info)

"Seemed harmless at first for Momma to keep Bunk amputated leg in the freezer." On a chicken farm in the rural south, Momma, Ivylee, and Sister have a memorial service each day for Bunk's amputated leg. Each looks for love and each waits: Momma waits for her husband Bunk to return and claim his severed leg or for God to fetch her home; Ivylee waits for her imaginary lover, Mr. Robinson, to come whisk her away to her "beautiful home in Miami," and Sister waits for relief--relief from running the farm and maintaining the family. When Bunk lost his leg, he lost his ability to reason and became so bizarre he was banned from the house and lives outside in the tool shed much like a family pet, "Precious." Someone knocks at the door, but Momma's spiritual beliefs are not strong enough for her to answer, so she looks for signs in the unusual items that keep appearing on their porch and in their yard. Who's There? is a southern comedy peppered with characters that are funny, sad, absurd, but most of all memorable.

Deftly constructed at 232 pages, Who's There?: a humorous spiritual journey in the Southern Crescent is being aggressively promoted to appropriate markets with a focus on the Comedy category. With U.S. wholesale distribution through Ingram and Baker & Taylor, and pervasive online availability through Amazon, Barnes & Noble and elsewhere, Who's There? meets consumer demand through both retail and library markets with a suggested retail price of $16.95.

About the Author

Sandra Jones Cropsey is still growing up in the South. Her writing focuses on southern charm, southern eccentricities. Her favorite quote is by Flannery O'Connor, who when asked why southern writers always write about the grotesque, responded, "Maybe we're the only ones left who still recognize it." Cropsey contends, "We don't just recognize it. We live it, and we don't just live it. We celebrate it." Who's There? is an excursion into the funny, the bizarre, the absurd.
