This book was WONDERFUL! It was surprisingly chock-full of twists and turns, and kept me enthralled right up to the very end. Greer does a beautiful job of spinning the tale, and his characters are very real. Very satisfying end,
Recommend for anyone who likes fiction, books set in another time period (San Francisco in the 1950s), a story with unexpected twists, or just a good read!

Wonderful. Subtle jokes and beautiful phrasing. I always want to know Arthur Less. More please.

Greer's storytelling style is unique and his characters are likeable, but I never felt like I could fully connect with it all, but maybe that is on purpose.

Road Trip with Mom
Review of the Amazon Original Stories audiobook (April 16, 2024) released simultaneously with the Audible Originals audiobook.

Born to southern parents, I am a suburban Maryland boy who now lives in San Francisco. My experience of America is limited to ’80s malls, pickled watermelon rind, Broadway shows, and fog; it is akin to owning only volume J–K of an encyclopedia.


This is a short memoir about a road trip from when the author travelled home to San Francisco from a mentoring job in Kansas and his mother asked to join him on the journey. Greer arranges for stays in out of the way kitschy tourist places where they sleep in anything from tents to teepees. Along the way they visit sites such as the Grand Canyon. Greer's mother is up for all of it including indulging her son's penchant for occasionally wearing a fried egg costume. Overall a lovely tale of mother and son bonding.

The Kindle edition includes several selfie photos taken along the journey.
