Virginia Sharp, January 2, 2013

Although this memoir is about the author himself, his observations apply to anyone [perhaps more so to those over 40]. The writing is so seamless, readers of any age will appreciate the flow and currents of his prose. He deal with themes familiar to most -- childhood scrapes [literally], teenage discovery of girls, his parents, work, and home in Brooklyn. But the writing isn't "cute" or "cringe-making"; neither too soft nor violent. You will find yourself stopping and thinking about your own life - and in a good way -- nothing sappy or mawkish here.
