Though the Southeastern Conference football season is still months away, the fans obsession is year-round. So head coach Von Driver will take his motivational magic and his Isosceles Triangle of Success on a Pigskin Cavalcade to the small towns in the state.

Also on the trip is the athletic director 's daughter, whom Love has tried to win by joining her book club a dubious strategy at best. The football aspects of the Cavalcade will prove child 's play compared to the literary hazards he faces. Will Love master the art of coach-speak? Will he win the affection of the girl? Find out in this fist-bumping, high-fiving, all-out comedic blitz about the sublimely ridiculous world of college football.

Praise for Inman Majors


"A light and lively sendup of modern woes."
—Kirkus Review

“Inman Majors is a sparklingly funny, immensely charming writer. PENELOPE LEMON gives us a hapless, scrappy, loveable heroine to root for and a whole cast of great characters.” —Kate Christensen, author of The Great Man and The Last Cruise

“If Penelope Lemon wasn’t taken, I’d be dating her myself. As hilarious as she is tough, Penelope is a heroine you can’t help rooting for. She also happens to be a fiercely loving mom with a giant heart. Once again, Inman Majors delivers a wildly entertaining Southern tale that’s funny, smart, poignant, and deliciously subversive.” —Michelle Richmond, author of The Marriage Pact

“In PENELOPE LEMON, Inman Majors captures a subversive, outrageously funny middle America. It’s like Bridget Jones’s Diary, but with a hilarious, small-town, rocker mother as its lead. I laughed out loud A LOT and cheered Penelope every step of the way.”—John Hart, author of The Last Child


“(A) delightful new comic novel about SEC football.” —Wall Street Journal

“One of the 20 best books of 2012.” —Bookpage

“Funny, irreverent and savvy." —Publisher's Weekly

“Laugh-out-loud comedy populates the narrative...A sardonic, fun take on big-time college football.” —Kirkus Reviews

“It is a gem of a comedic novel, so laugh-out loud funny that readers might not even notice that if also captures the essence of the sport with humanity and grace.” —Knoxville News Sentinel

“Genuine laughs on nearly every page.” —Bookpage

“The comedy, which ranges smoothly from broad to subtle, is nonstop…(T)he writing is witty and razor—sharp throughout.” —Booklist (starred review)

“You know how sometimes you read something that makes you laugh so hard you’re embarrassed to read it in public? That’s how I felt about Love’s Winning Play." —Eliza Borné, Book Case blog, editor-in-chief of the Oxford American

“A rollicking tale of Southeastern Conference gridiron madness.”—Richmond Times-Dispatch

“Majors targets the ridiculousness of hype and hysteria over college football teams and is very funny doing it.” —Baton Rouge Advocate

“Strap yourself in—it’s a wild ride." —Library Journal

“I can’t remember the last time I laughed out loud this much reading a book.”—Metropulse

“One of our sharpest, funniest writers.”—The Classical


“A sharp and hilarious novel.” —Booklist

“Majors scores big points with his cast of friendly eccentrics, zingy dialogue, and a plot that wanders across the Southern landscape like a crazed raccoon chased by a pack of wild dogs.”
—Atlanta Journal-Constitution

“Irreverent, hilarious, reportorial…Majors does it all.”—Knoxville News Sentinel

“Uniquely entertaining.” —Seattle Times

"If (Barry) Hannah is Southern Fiction's Howlin' Wolf, then Majors may well prove to be its B.B. King...Quick-witted and irreverent.” —Planet Weekly

“Wonderdog reads like Charles Portis cross-pollinated with Barry Hannah.” —William Gay

“Wonderdog reads as if narrated by the ne’er-do-well, incorrigible, and brilliant wastrel cousin of Walker Percy’s Binx Bolling. This book’s a hell of a read.” —Brad Watson


“The best, most fully accomplished new novel I have read in perhaps three years.... (It) is in fact a kind of Southern 'Great Gatsby.” —Alabama Public Radio

“It has been 62 years since "All the King's Men," Robert Penn Warren's brilliant novel about Southern politics, appeared on the scene…Inman Majors …takes up the challenge in this wonderful new book.” Newark Star Ledger

“Majors’s depiction of a Tennessee evening is reminiscent of James Agee’s hypnotic “Knoxville: Summer of 1915,” best known as the prologue to “A Death in the Family.” —N
