Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0615213073, Paperback)THE FUNNIEST NOVEL OF THE ELECTION YEAR. William Elliott Hazelgrove?s Rocket Man is in the tradition of Richard Russo?s Nobody?s Fool, Richard Ford?s Independence Day and Tom Poratta?s Election; all three writers coming to grips with contemporary life in the suburbs. Rocket Man is a satire of life today. Dale Hammer is trying to get his piece of the American Dream, but he just can?t keep up. In one week, Dale is accused of cutting down the sign to his subdivision, plagued with a father who comes to live over his garage and on the hook for being the Rocket Man of his son?s Scout troop. In a time when the American Dream has become nothing short of being rich and famous, Dale heads for the catastrophe of Rocket Day with one mission?to give his son a sense of independence, and in the process, find himself.
