*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.
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!
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!
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!
It made me jump up and down and holler ’Yummy’, like my grandmother Mary Lucille’s red velvet cake!
It’s a runaway charmer, hands down.
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.
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.
