a funny novelist for your enjoyment.

Popular cheeky author Wilton Barnhardt has created a hilarious novel about a tradition southern family with his latest Lookaway Lookaway, featuring the successful and well-connected Johnston-Jarvis family of North Carolina.

The novel is set primarily in Charlotte, NC during the first decade of the 21st century. Conversations and flashbacks take us back in the lives of the Jarvis-Johnston family as far as the Civil War. Jerene and Duke Johnston are a society family steeped in a struggle to maintain their social standing, and have more than their share of shocking secrets. The four Johnston children are super complicated and each chapter is told by a different member of this dysfunctional (to say the least) family of liars, cheaters, drunks, skanks, and hypocrites. It’s a fantastic American novel, filled with enough historical content to make the readers who don’t care much for skanks and drunks happy.
