TOUR: TRAVELS WITH PENNY by David Alan Morrison

A Good Tales Book Tour

Title: Travels with Penny
David Alan Morrison
Publication Date: 
April 2015

Two things flashed through my mind when I opened the door to the sex shop to find my mother standing in front of the display case talking to a tall salesman wearing a leather harness, jock strap and a dog collar. The first was, "Oh, crap." The second was, "I hate when Dad's right."

Following the sudden death of his father, a single, middle-aged gay guy struggles with his own mortality be reminiscing about the travels with his gregarious mother. It is a look at the transformation of the baffling, complex relationship between children and their parents.

If the far-out, rip-roaring reader's hook hasn't clued you to the hilarious, uproarious nature of this travelogue-memoir, then you must be reading with your eyes closed and your heart on mute. The no-holds-barred journey of a long-suffering gay male and his unusual mother is also a narrative of culture shock [note: Kentucky is not the only state consistently mangling city pronunciations] but also of a virtual coming of age. Either way, hilarious and touching!
