Expecting Applause and Nobody Claps is an absurdist coming-of-age story about a man already came-of-age. Growing up, Lonnie Clayton wasn’t held captive. He just never left the trailer because it was dirt for near nine miles on any side. He didn’t have a bike, his old man was out all hours driving a tow, and even if he wanted to walk, he didn’t have anywhere to go anyway. Now that Lonnie is a man (by some definitions), it’s time for him to get out there and show it. Make a living, find a girl, start a family. But if you had the same daddy that Lonnie did, you might’ve had some trouble as well. It’s hard to make a living in small town Nevada without getting wrapped up in a quaint group of organized crime. It’s hard to find a girl when your role model’s advice reeks of lamentation and coconut rum. And it’s hard to start a family when your foundational knowledge of baby-making is limited to resources found in a trailer nine miles from nowhere.

Roy Richins grew up in the dusty streets of Las Vegas, Nevada. He currently lives in Fort Collins, Colorado with his two children.
