Product Description

Review

Hall uses his creation to explore the US of trailer parks, petty crime, insane money-making notions and harsh class divisions. He's pretty darn funny about it too . . . this is an intelligent and inspired book (MORNING STAR)

As funny as his hilarious stand-up. (ZOO)

Like reading a transcript of The Jerry Springer Show- hilarious. (ICE MAGAZINE)

As happy conforming to white trash cliches as he is subverting them, Perrier award winner Hall has proved his pen is just as sharp as his mouth. (BIG ISSUE)

Book Description

* The memoir of Otis Lee Crenshaw, Rich Hall's Perrier Award-winning alter ego

* 'Next to Otis, all other comics seem one-dimensional' OBSERVER

* 'Rich Hall is one of THE greatest comedy prose writers' TIME OUT

Format: Paperback
Rich Hall is a comedy genius, and writing in the guise of Otis Lee Crenshaw, he writes an incredubly funny, almost heart-warming autobiography of sorts.
It covers his time in prison, his wives (all 6 Brenda's) and includes some hilarious transcripts of court proceedings.
I would recommend this book to anyone who is a fan of Otis Lee Crenshaw, or just Rich Hall in general.

Format: Paperback
Apparently Otis is a long-running character of Rich Hall's, but not knowing that didn't stop me enjoying this book from start to finish. Nor did knowing nothing about Tennessee, trailer parks, country and western, prison - any of the subjects in the book. Otis Lee Crenshaw told me all I needed to know, and made me laugh out loud right through the book.

Format: Paperback
Actually one of the funniest books I have ever read...laughed out loud many times. Its worth reading for the court case transcripts alone. Ironically not a huge fan of Country and Western music, but would have to say Otis Lee Crenshaw is now my favourite C&W song writer. Not a word I like to throw out too much, but Rich Hall is a 'genius' of comedy writing, I have to admit. I will be reading more of his books for sure.
