*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.
A courageous and boldly honest memoir. Eric Poole says things people feel but would never admit to, which makes him vulnerable and endearing.
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!
Equally funny and poignant, Poole’s memoir-in-essays is like David Sedaris by way of Judd Apatow.
Oh, my… Eric Poole’s journey of self-delusion and self-discovery had me laughing one minute, crying the next, and rooting for him every second. This charming book is a TV series waiting to happen!
