A funny, poignant, and wise novel about a very rich underdog who shows everyone just how little his IQ says about his smarts.

Patricia Wood is a Ph.D. student at the University of Hawaii, focusing on education, disability, and diversity. Lottery is inspired by her work—and her father’s own big lottery win. This is her first novel.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. A.C.S. © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
