A re-issue of the exhilarating, highly acclaimed first novel from the author of Bite the Stars.

“Maylou wanted to feel buoyant and gung ho. She wanted to feel like a grand prize winner in life's sweepstakes, but with her mama newly dead, buried under ground like a bulb that could come to pretty flower only in her mind, she thought herself destined to remain swampy and downtrodden.”

Miss You Like Crazy is a road novel belonging to Maylou Puce Turner, a young woman whose beloved mama dies'somewhat triumphantly'after winning a game of gin rummy in a steamy Florida trailer park. Suddenly alone with her distraught old daddy, Maylou embarks on a weird and wonderful odyssey to put her mama to rest and somehow get everyone back to Kansas.

Originally published in 1994, Miss You Like Crazy will be re-issued to coincide with the author's latest book, Bite the Stars. This is an exuberant and moving debut novel about the steely bond between mother and daughter, and proves without doubt that the best humor is rooted in tragedy.
