Praise for this book

"If a reader could coax Earl Mulvaney to slip from these pages and mentor the dismantling of Man Martin's Days of the Endless Corvette, there would be more than enough comedy, pathos, tenderness, excitement, and pure d magic left over to build half a dozen lesser novels." - Sonny Brewer

"Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome to the stage Man Martin, a wholly original writer whose voice will linger in your mind. This is a wonderful novel - a tenderly shaded love story and a deliciously intimate portrait of human beings seeking answers to all the hard questions. Days of the Endless Corvette casts a spell that is memorable, painful, and sweet." - Mark Childress

"Man Martin's tall tale stretches truth until it squeaks and gives up moments of such perfect beauty that more than once I found myself grinning through my tears. It's smart and funny and quirky and deeply imagined, and at its heart is a gorgeous faith in the potency of human connections. Martin crafts a rich feast from love's leftovers and smallest pieces, delivering a wonderful book, wonderful in every sense of the word." - Joshilyn Jackson
