John R Carroll

Published by Samuel French Inc

6 Male 3 Female

Chet Roberts has had it. He's tired of dirty air, crime in the streets and pollution under his nose in short, everyday living in the city

He moves his family to a deserted California beach city to start a new life as a writer. Imagine his alarm when he learns the only house in the area has been bought by the President as a summer White House

There goes Chet's peace, quiet and yes, the neighborhood. Chet battles with the Secret Service, nosy tourists and his family and a certain dictator from "over there." Incidents pitting the common man against red tape are hilarious

When the summer ends and the President and his entourage leave, Chet realizes the experience will make a great novel
