Pete Banning was Clanton's favorite son, a returning war hero, the patriarch of a prominent family, a farmer, a father, a neighbor, and a faithful member of the Methodist church. Then one cool October morning in 1946, he rose early, drove into town, walked into the church, and calmly shot and killed the Reverend Dexter Bell.

I kept skipping back to try to figure out if I was missing part of the plot only to find out there never was one; a rambling disjointed story if ever.

A pulse-pounding new play from Tony Award-winning® playwright Dennis Kelly takes you on a journey that is at once hilarious, gripping, and heartbreaking. This world-premiere production starring Carey Mulligan (The Great Gatsby, An Education) is available exclusively on Audible after a celebrated run at the Royal Court Theatre in London and off-Broadway at the Minetta Lane Theatre.

This book turns you on your head; when I saw Carey Mulligan I thought, what for, why? Why would she do an audiobook?

This book kind of creeps up behind you. I fell asleep several nights while trying to listen. (It is one of the reasons I do listen is to sleep). One night followed the next where I would only get half-way through and then to sleep. When I finally was awake I started in the middle of the book and went to the end and now I cannot stop thinking.

There is such a normalcy to this book; from start to finish it is the stuff of everyday life and then it is not. I know why she said yes to this reading as the writing is like one of those little Russian dolls, one story inside the other. A book about nothing and then about everything. I want more.
