9780099515838: Lottery: The Fortunes and Misfortunes of Perry L

Perry L. Crandall knows what it's like to be an outsider. With an IQ of 76, he's an easy mark. Before his grandmother died, she armed Perry well with what he'd need to know: the importance of words and writing things down, and how to play the lottery. Most importantly, she taught him whom to trust - a crucial lesson for Perry when he wins the multimillion-dollar jackpot. As his family descends, moving in on his fortune, his fate and his few true friends, he has a lesson for them: never ever underestimate Perry L. Crandall.

About the Author:

Patricia Wood is a PhD student at the University of Hawaii, focusing on education, disability and diversity. Lottery is inspired by her work, as well as by a number of events in her life, including her father winning the Washington State Lottery. She lives with her husband aboard a sailboat moored in Ko' Olina, Hawaii. Lottery is her first novel and was shortlisted for the Orange Broadband Prize for Fiction 2008. Patricia has one son, Andrew, who lives in Everett, where Lottery takes place.

From AudioFile:

As Perry L. Crandall tells us, his IQ may be 76, but he is not retarded. In fact, he has a job and lives well and happily with his Gran. Then, in quick succession, Gran dies, and Perry wins $12 million in the Washington State Lottery. Somehow, Perry must cope. Pacing his reading so that we hear the deliberation of Perrys speech, Paul Michael offers up a complex portrait of a stubborn, simple everyman. He also does well with the other characters, choosing to evoke personality rather than create radically different voices. The writing is sweet, but Michaels robust voice keeps sappiness at bay and creates an emotional listening experience.
