Heart of Junk
"Set in a failing antique mall in Wichita, Kansas, with a motley cast of antique, collectible, trinket and trash-dealing characters, Luke Geddes' debut novel, Heart of Junk, is laugh-out-loud funny. This eclectic group becomes entangled in the disappearance of a Honey Boo Boo-esque child beauty queen and a wholly bizarre, utterly delightful romp ensues. Despite its levity and humor, it is not hollow. It is at times incredibly poignant, bringing up themes of nostalgia, growing older, loss and the importance and beauty to be found in our relationship to material objects. Perfect for fans of George Saunders, Carl Hiassen and the films of Christopher Guest."
