EARL has taken one too many wrong turns on the highway of life. However, a twist of fate sends him into a life-renewing tailspin. When a car hits Earl – immediately after he won the lottery – he has an epiphany and begins to question his karma. From that moment on he becomes determined to right all the wrongs from his past. Despite his seemingly limited intelligence, Earl is oddly effective—and the fourth-year series, like its namesake, has a voice and style all its own.
