I recently finished a novel about Sumer (in southern Iraq, 3000 BCE) called Sweet Water. Currently I'm working on a sweeping blend of fiction and non-fiction about the Sedentary Divide, that period in human history when we stopped moving around the landscape and settled down to domesticate everything in sight.

a most hilarious book, particularly if you have a dark sense of humor! i read this many years ago on the advice of a friend and have purchased many copies of it which seem to keep disappearing as people tend to begin reading it and then wander off with it. now it's on my KF and it's going to stay there! seriously funny and absolutely escapist.
Scream_I LOVE YOU
Great writer! Funny.

little america is the best book i've ever read, despite the sudden ending. it's about the hardest book to do a report on (you have to leave out most of the book), but it's definately worth reading. unless you are easily offended......

Raunchy and below the belt in a very relaxing way. Loose ends tie up and everyone is horny until things coalesce over time into an almost calamity of exposure. I lost this book in hard copy years ago and have looked for it over many years. I am glad I found it finally on Kindle. Enjoy it.

Agood read, I first read this book in 1980. I lost my copy and wanted to read it again.

I enjoyed Little America recently (how had I missed it for so long?) The words grab you and throw you in the middle of a raging stream of consciousness without a life preserver, so you read quickly to keep your head above the flow. Swigart uses words much like one of my all-time favorite authors, Tom Robbins. Maybe they're the same person?!? At any rate, dig out your old water wings and read this book!

One of those books that one can glean more and more insight from the more times one reads it. A word of warning: While reading this book, one is inclined to try and get through it quite fast, it is that humorous and entertaining! The benefit of reading a bit slower is that one is able to better appreciate the subtle innuendos. Altogether, Mr. Swigart exhibits an above average intelligence and insight as well as a unique sense of humor. A book well worth investing in, and reading over and over.
