Greenwich, RI Author Publishes Novel

By: PR Leap
( Redneck Riviera, a new book by James Hooker, has been released by Dorrance Publishing Co., Inc.

After being laid off from his executive job with a California high-tech company, a man and his wife decide to leave the "rat race" and move to a tropical island on the coast of North Carolina. The culture of the island and its people are completely different from this cosmopolitan couple, who struggle to adapt to the island's Southern, down-home, Redneck residents.

From food to local traditions, the author documents his humorous journey, in a classic tale of a "clash of cultures."

What could possibly go wrong when Yankee meets Redneck?

"Recounting the stages of a couple's cross-country move, Redneck Riviera is an amiable, humor-filled novel." - Clarion Review (read full review
