Nothing Left to Burn: A Memoir by Jay Varner

"My grandfather Lucky drove to our trailer every Saturday morning, his silver and maroon Chevrolet pickup loaded with garbage bags piled so high they nearly spilled over the sides."

I know from the flap copy that Lucky is going to turn out to be quite a handful (arsonist) so starting the book with setting him up as a bit of a kook seems very appropriate.

I like that. Paints a great image without being overly descriptive. And with a name like Lucky, you know that character's got to be interesting! Here's my BB.
