Get ready for a hilarious ride in Potlatch: A Comedy by Bruce Hartman. With her father serving a life sentence of house arrest, her mother immersed in the responsibilities of a no-show job, and sister Tiffany in search of a future husband, Alice Coggins does her best to overcome the status of the loser daughter, except in the eyes of good ol’ Dad. Ray Coggins is a scam artist of the highest degree and intent upon living the best imprisoned life possible. As he devotes his waking hours to arguing with a neighborhood homeless man, Alice investigates the existence of the mythical Potlatch. Is it real? Do the famed gnomes really rule Wall Street? Is the economy of the world reliant on the theory that money doesn’t really exist, and is the best financial investment truly the acquisition of an endangered giant tortoise? Follow Alice’s adventures in furthering her own self-worth in this raucous story full of fast-paced dialogue and strangely believable circumstances that engulf the Coggins family.

Author Bruce Hartman presents a no-holds barred tale of wit and over-the-top fun in Potlatch. Loony characters and unbridled ridiculousness mark this as one of the most amusing reads ever to be published. Alice Coggins fights the combined systems of health care and insurance fraud as she wipes the slate clean for her home-confined father, finds love in a most unusual way, and undermines corporate America in this must-read novel. Kudos to Hartman for sharing this hysterical tale of fun and unbridled laughter.
