"Evel Knievel days is so good, I want to dress it up in a star-spangled jumpsuit, leap it over the pyramids of Giza on a Laverda American Eagle 750cc motorcycle, and watch it stick its landing before an audience of millions in downtown Butte, Montana. A funny, heart-warming, compulsively readable novel about the unbreakable bonds of family -- and baklava. This is one you shouldn't miss. Terrific!" –Garth Stein, New York Times-bestselling author of The Art of Racing in the Rain
