Pick is a three-street Kentucky mountain town, where drinking is prohibited and funerals are popular because people are ”afraid if they don’t go to funerals, no one will come to theirs.” An unlikely place for a Stanford philosophy grad to end up, but unfortunately, Tom Jett hasn’t a choice. A three-month cross-country adventure ends when his car breaks down in the middle of Pick and he doesn’t have enough money to fix it. Lana Witt’s first novel, Slow Dancing On Dinosaur Bones, is a wacky romp through a region of colorful characters blessed with down-home, inbred charm.
