9780743257954: Sneaky People: A Novel

The time is the 1930s. Buddy Sandifer, dressed in his natty white flannels, baby-blue shirt, striped tie, tan-and-white shoes, and coconut-straw hat with polka-dot band, is falling into one of his moods. Owner of a used-car lot and father of a fifteen-year-old son with a penchant for sex manuals, Buddy has decided to murder his wife and marry his mistress, Laverne, a robust blonde who cooks his favorite meal of fried pork chops, fried potatoes, and fried apples while wearing a short pink apron over black-lace step-ins and brassiere, long-gartered silk stockings, and platform shoes. The only problem is how to arrange the crime.

Book Description Simon Schuster Ltd, United Kingdom, 2006. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reprint. 211 x 140 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Buddy Sandifer is the natty owner of a used-car lot in the 1930s American Midwest. He is the father of Ralph, a sex-obsessed 15-year old, and the husband of Naomi, a seemingly boring housewife. Laverne is his mistress, a former prostitute who insists on Buddy s promise to divorce his wife. Buddy has a more drastic plan for Naomi - he plans on hiring someone to kill her. The Midwestern setting of SNEAKY PEOPLE provides a steady stream of quirky characters and a dry, dusty sense of place to emphasize their languid humanity and contrast the deep passions that drive their actions. As Buddy handles the planning of his wife s murder, Naomi hides a literary secret, and Ralph explores new sexual territory, the hidden truths of their lives will come to the surface with surprising consequences.
