Synopsis: When from the sheer weight of humanity and its assorted accouterments the Charleston Peninsula broke off from mainland South Carolina and began floating out to sea, among the last to notice were those persons trapped on board the unlikely vessel. . . .

So begins the tale of latter-day Charleston and its curious secession. The schism occurs when the Sportsman's Jamboree (including Hunters for Jesus), the Bravado Arts Festival, and the Tri-County Mini-Storage Convention converge on the city at once. Native Charlestonians (those "born right the first time") and an accumulation of tourists-or "cumyahs"-and carpetbaggers now find themselves unbound from the conventions of family, community, even geography. Following the course of the errant island and its inhabitants as they wrestle with the new reality of living a life adrift, Charlie Geer presents a masterful and hilarious send-up of the nuances of entrenched society and the foibles of the human condition.

About the Author: A native of Charleston, Charlie Geer received a BA in English from the College of Charleston in 1994. Before earning an MFA from the University of Florida in 2001, he worked by turns as a circus roustabout, an orchard keeper, a commercial fisherman, a high-school teacher, and a carpenter. He now teaches at the College of Charleston, where he also serves as an assistant editor for the literary journal Crazyhorse. Recent summers have found him traveling throughout Mexico, Argentina, and Brazil. He has received fellowships from the University of Florida and the South Carolina Academy of Authors and is a past winner of the South Carolina Fiction Project and the Piccolo Fiction Open. His work has appeared in Tin House, The Sun, and Bloomsbury Magazine. This is his first [published!] novel.
