...this book is making me laugh out loud! The Spaceman remnamed DESI by his wife, has to learn all he can about earthlings. He ends up marrying Edna Bradshaw who he calls, Edna Bradshaw, every time he refers to her, a hairdresser from Louisiana. I can see why the author starts the book out with humor. The 'meat' of the book is the life-changing events of the persons that have come to be on his space ship for this time. And where did they come from? A bus driving to a casino! The events that these people share with the spaceman are serious themes any debate team could use as topics. I think I will read this book again in the future and in the interum I am looking forward to reading his Pulizer Prize winning book.
