Trapped in the small-town world of trailer parks and meth labs, Jack is a disillusioned (junior) college freshman spending his days and nights dreaming of hitting it big and escaping his small-town life. When he finds out about a lost winning lottery ticket, he knows it’s his big chance. The problem? His ticket out of town literally lies in the hands of a group of the most unscrupulous, dangerously ignorant yokels around. To make his fortune, Jack will have to evade and outsmart the crooked sheriff, a mean-tempered drug connection, and a slack-jawed burnout biker named Spider. The lure of big money causes everyone to go a little bit crazy, and Jack will have to keep his head, escape both sides of the law, and find a way to Austin before noon tomorrow. After that, the ticket will be worthless.
“The Great Texas Trailer Park Escape” is an adventure novel set in East Texas, “It’s A Mad Mad Mad Mad World” taking place in the trailer-laden world of the people of Walmart.
“Kerr’s uncanny sense of humor and view of the world make for an entertaining read that will keep you smiling”
— Sara Brooke (Kransen House)
“Some people are good writers. Some are natural-born story tellers. They aren’t the same thing. Reid Kerr is one of those smart asses who belongs in both camps. The Great Texas Trailer Park Escape is incriminating evidence in his defense. If you don’t laugh at it, you must not have a mouth.”
— Tim Bryant (Dutch Curridge)
“Reid Kerr is Carl Hiaasen, Molly Ivins, Kinky Friedman and Tom Robbins in one package.”
— Andrew (review from Amazon)
“Reid Kerr’s ability to spin the trailer park living, motorcycle riding, lottery ticket buying, east Texan lifestyle into a tale that has no geographic boundaries will make you laugh and gasp at how well he captures your own world. You’ll read it, you’ll love it, you’ll give thanks that you are not Skeeter. Highly recommend – especially for those holding a Lottery ticket.”
— John Paul Allen (Weeping Mary)
“Reid is one funny mother but downright treasonous. How dare he write Texans with such hilarious accuracy.”
— Travis Erwin (The Feedstore Chronicles)
“Reid is my favorite American-born English writer.”
— Matt Bellner (Mattie 5 Films)
“This is one ridiculously funny book.”
— Chris (review from Amazon)
“Reid’s clever writing and fast pace takes the readers through a breakneck jaunt in East Texas via a variety of interesting characters. The Great Texas Trailer Park Escape is a fun romp through East Texas with action at every turn and the opportunity to do bad things. Mr. Kerr takes you by the hand into the trailer park society and provides you with storytelling that will guarantee a chuckle and a gasp as you progress through this story…Reid’s first effort shows that we can expect great things from him as an author. Hopefully we will get a chance to run the gauntlet with these rednecks East Texans again in the near future.”
— Keith (review from Amazon)
“Reid is a fine writer in general, but when it comes to blending storytelling, humor, and sarcasm, i’m not sure there are many better.”
— Jackson Herod (Host, “Geeks On The Mic” blog/radio show)
“Think “Dukes Of Hazard” in East Texas…Very enjoyable read, filled with chuckles throughout and several outright guffaws.”
–Dave (review from Amazon)
“I love the sarcasm, the wit, and the heart in Kerr’s novel. I give it 5 stars!! If you’re looking for a fast, comical read then this is the book for you!”
— Rachel (review from Amazon)
“If Carl Hiaasen lived in East Texas instead of Florida, this is what it would sound like! This was a fast and fun read that captured the craziness of the locals with stunning accuracy. Thumbs up!”
— Todd (review from Amazon)
“Reid Kerr is funnier than any one human being has a right to be.”
— L. Scallorn (review from Amazon)
