Synopsis: Welcome to Grand Prairie, Louisiana--land of confounding accents, hard-drinking senior citizens, and charming sinners--brought to hilarious life in a bracing, heartfelt debut novel simmering with Cajun spice. . .

Father Steve Sibille has come home to the bayou to take charge of St. Pete's church. Among his challenges are teenybopper altar girls, insomnia-curing confessions, and alarmingly alluring congregant Vicky Carrier. Then there's Miss Rita, an irrepressible centenarian with a taste for whiskey, cracklins, and sticking her nose in other people's business.

When an outsider threatens to poach Father Steve's flock, Miss Rita suggests he fight back by staging an event that will keep St. Pete's parishioners loyal forever. As The First Annual Grand Prairie Rabbit Festival draws near, help comes from the strangest places. And while the road to the festival may be paved with good intentions--not to mention bake sales, an elephant, and the most bizarre cook-out ever--where it will lead is anyone's guess...

"A sparkling debut." --Luis Alberto Urrea, author of Queen of America

"Delightful. . .Wheaton writes with an infectious energy, and his affection for the characters and culture is authentic." --Publishers Weekly

"Kept me laughing through the night. I am a huge Ken Wheaton fan." --Matthew Quick, author of The Silver Linings Playbook

About the Author: Ken Wheaton was born in Opelousas, Louisiana, in 1973. Raised Catholic and Cajun, Wheaton aspired to one day be a navy pilot but was sidelined by bad eyesight and poor math skills. He graduated from Opelousas Catholic School in 1991 and went off to Southampton College Long Island University in Southampton, New York, intending to study marine biology. An excess of drinking and (again) a dearth of math skills led him to become an English major. From there he returned to Louisiana, where he received an MA in creative writing from the University of Southwestern Louisiana (now University of Louisiana-Lafayette). Wheaton is the author of The First Annual Grand Prairie Rabbit Festival and the managing editor of the trade publication Advertising Age. A Louisiana native, he lives in Brooklyn, New York.Says Dave Barry: I had several drinks with the author at a party, and based on that experience, I would rank this novel right up there with anything by Marcel Proust.
