The Great Tejon Club Jubilee

Publication Date: 


In the tradition of Mark Twain and Will Rogers, Gerald Haslam's redoubtable Tejon-Club Gang returns the tall-tale and the bumpkin-humor traditions to their proper places in American letters ... where ever that is! The gang manages to poke holes in social trends and elitist assumptions -- and in their own prejudices -- while bumbling from one beer-fueled misadventure to the next.

Thirteen short stories -- plus a disclaimer by the narrator -- introduce readers to these Good Ol' Boys who live and work in California's Great Central Valley.

"Haslam's fictional characters are based on real people, and that authenticity is what makes these stories great."

"This book is a lighthearted set of fourteen short stories that are nothing short of hilarious."
— Da [Amazon Books review]

"Great blue collar humor. Humor based on another time and another place, the California Central Valley 50 years ago, and loaded with insights of the working class there.
