It made me jump up and down and holler ’Yummy’, like my grandmother Mary Lucille’s red velvet cake!
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!
A witty, observant, deliciously satisfying autobiography.
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.
Equally funny and poignant, Poole’s memoir-in-essays is like David Sedaris by way of Judd Apatow.
A courageous and boldly honest memoir. Eric Poole says things people feel but would never admit to, which makes him vulnerable and endearing.
It’s a runaway charmer, hands down.
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!
*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.
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!
