Lottery is a novel about the nature of luck and chance. Perry's IQ is only 76, but he's not stupid. His Gram taught him everything he needs to know to survive: She taught him to write things down so he won't forget them. She taught him to play the lottery every week. And most important, she taught him whom to trust.
When Gram dies, Perry is left bereft at the age of thirty-one. Then his weekly Washington State Lottery ticket wins him $12 million, and he finds he has more family than he knows what to do with - and his luck has very much changed. Lottery will leave readers wondering until the last page whether Perry's good fortune can possibly withstand such a perilous world. But never underestimate Perry L. Crandall.

Perry's IQ is only 76, but he's not stupid. His grandmother taught him everything he needs to know to survive: She taught him to write things down so he won't forget them. She taught him to play the lottery every week. And, most important, she taught him whom to trust. When Gram dies, Perry is left orphaned and bereft at the age of thirty-one. Then his weekly Washington State Lottery ticket wins him 12 million dollars, and he finds he has more family than he knows what to do with. Peopled with characters both wicked and heroic who leap off the pages, Lottery is a deeply satisfying, gorgeously rendered novel about trust, loyalty, and what distinguishes us as capable.
