The Hereafter Gang

(1991)
A novel by

 
 
Library Journal
Doug Hoover never liked work and changed jobs frequently. He did the same with women, whom he loved more than that only Texas can supply. When he comes to the end of his journey, a wonderful town where everything costs a nickel, he realizes he has died and must decide whether or not to go back in another form. Some of the people he discusses this with are Billy the Kid, the Red Baron, and assorted Wild West and World War I aces. The heaven they are in has cars, dogs, cats, ribs, saloons, and sex. Veteran author Barrett has produced a most inventive novel, with flashes of brilliance and impudence. The Texas dialog rings true, and the style is appropriately sassy. A bit long (with some repetitions and wandering), but entertaining, rich in humor and nostalgia.-- Robert H. Dona hugh, formerly with Youngstown & Mahoning Cty. P.L., Ohio
