A touching and RIOTOUSLY funny story about one boy’s search for his personal and creative identities. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll keep your jazz hands to yourself, Mister!
It begins as a hilarious read, and ends as a profoundly touching tale of traumas and triumphs. I ADORED it.
It’s a runaway charmer, hands down.
A witty, observant, deliciously satisfying autobiography.
Equally funny and poignant, Poole’s memoir-in-essays is like David Sedaris by way of Judd Apatow.
Eric Poole unfurls his shag carpeted, Match Game-lovin’ 70’s childhood with incredible wit and honesty. Light up a Winston, open a Tab and tuck in!
An absolute must-read book for the outcast in all of us, WHERE’S MY WAND is hilarious and heartfelt. I could not put this book down. It’s a rare treat.
A courageous and boldly honest memoir. Eric Poole says things people feel but would never admit to, which makes him vulnerable and endearing.
Gut-splittingly funny, Wand is also a deeply moving account of a boy’s attempt to control his world with his own brand of magic.
*Starred Review *
Punctuated with HIGHLY effective humor, this book is a magnetic collection of real stories that sheds a new light on life in the Midwest.
