When this novel's eager protagonist, Jerry Chiffon, dressed in a red ladies' suit and carrying a fake Chanel purse, tries to assassinate a right-wing United States senator in Branch Creek, North Carolina, he succeeds in putting the tiny town on the national map. Have You Heard introduces a host of inimitable characters with endearing foibles, not-so-endearing foibles, and closely held, destructive secrets.
