Summaries and Reviews
Amazon.com description: Product Description: Calvin was in trouble because he’d lied and begins to perspire from his forehead, which was an inherited trait from his mother’s side. She pushes him away and utters, ‘West Virginia Jews must have names?’ ‘Levi, er ah, Levi Klein,’ he replies sheepishly. ‘I wanna be movie star.
--Mike Lilly, West Virginia Jew

And so goes the story of how Calvin Barfield, son of a Cherokee, West Virginia moonshiner, becomes Levi Klein, the next Clint Eastwood in the Mike Lilly’s new book West Virginia Jew.

Calvin sets out for the West Coast in his father’s van, Maybell, with his dog Partsman as his sidekick. Predictably, Calvin finds the journey to and in California quite different and faster paced than his rural upbringing and manages to get himself in some seriously funny trouble. He gets arrested, sleeps with the deranged daughter of the President of Columbia Pictures, escapes from the jail and falls in with some rather unsavory Los Angeles characters; all within days of arriving in LA. This is merely the beginning of Calvin’s quest to become a movie star.

Told from Calvin’s cousin Clint’s point-of-view and filled with hillbilly humor and backwoods dialogue, West Virginia Jew will entertain and amuse readers over a quick-paced 15 chapters.
