“Anything can happen, and does, in this rollicking farce, set in a sleepy south Georgia town where the Sweat family resides in the Garden of Eden Trailer Park. Jesus returns to earth as a Mexican forklift driver at the Majestic Chicken Plant, a NASCAR-loving redneck named Butterbean takes on corporate corruption, and the scales of justice swing every-which-way. If reading Luck Be A Chicken doesn’t make you laugh out loud at least a dozen times, you owe me an RC Cola and a Moonpie.”

Cassandra King, author of The Same Sweet Girls’ Guide to Life

“In a delightful blending of Jeff Foxworthy and Damon Runyon, Luck Be A Chicken is a rollicking redneck rooster roast that really delivers.”

-Brian Jay Corrigan, Georgia Author of the Year, author of The PhasmologistThe Poet of Loch NessPlayhouse Law and Carnivalaria

“With Luck Be A Chicken, author Jameson Gregg has penned a masterful work of comedy, taking the reader on a hilarious romp through rural south Georgia, a landscape populated by unforgettable characters inhabiting a world that lies on the periphery of mainstream America. Gregg’s forte is his ability to skewer for the reader the little eccentricities that define each of them and their environment, from the weighty denizens of the Garden of Eden Trailer Park to the faux finery of Honeysuckle Plantation. A most enjoyable read from a most talented author!”

-William Rawlings, author of A Killing on Ring Jaw Bluff

“NASCAR fans will enjoy this raucous tale about Butterbean Sweat, the good ole boy race fan who lives for Dale Earnhardt Jr.’s next win and idolizes Bill Elliott, a/k/a Awesome Bill from Dawsonville. I know a thing or two about Georgia rednecks and Luck Be A Chicken is on the money. Bean is in the fight of his life against his crooked boss in this well-written and fascinating story.”

-Gordon Pirkle, President, Georgia Racing Hall of Fame, and owner, Dawsonville Pool Room

Luck Be A Chicken will appeal to fans of John Kennedy Toole’s cult classic, A Confederacy of Dunces, but Jameson Gregg shows more empathy for his hero. Butterbean Sweat always has his family in mind when launching his capers, and their love for each other is at the heart of this picaresque novel.”

– George Weinstein, author of Hardscrabble Road and The Five Destinies of Carlos Moreno

“In Luck Be A Chicken, Jameson Gregg has created an original and impressive first novel. This bodes well for his career as a writer. He is quite the storyteller.”

-Jackie K Cooper, author of Memory’s Mist: The View from the Journey

“I found in Luck Be A Chicken an authenticity in tone, description, and situational comedy that is seldom so charmingly displayed.  The wit is reminiscent of (Mark) Twain.  The writing captures the vernacular with spelling that lets the reader hear the dialect. The book is a must-read for all those who enjoyed the Jeff Foxworthy series, ‘You might be a Redneck.'”

-Patricia Cardona, Judge, 2015 Georgia Author of the Year contest, and English Instructor, Kennesaw State University
