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