In this recording, Bill Lepp showcases the ability that has repeatedly won him the West Virginia State Liar's contest. From fishing trips gone awry to the real story of Jonah (who was actually swallowed by a giant carp), Lepp's tales are so tall they barely fit in the room. Yet there is something disarming about his lively and affable way of relating events, so that you're lulled into suspending disbelief as you go along with him on these wild rides. Children and adults alike will be laughing out loud at some of the scrapes Lepp gets into, though some of his asides ("faster than an intern leaving the Oval Office") will, mercifully, travel over the heads of children. J.C.G.
