This book is a gem! What a wonderful memoir, much in the spirit of Augusten Burroughs and David Sedaris, this book takes you right to the heart of the 70’s. I laughed out loud quite a bit while reading this and even thought the author had a tough time of it growing up, his spirit never seemed to diminish. Imagine growing up with an obsessive mother with a cleaning bug that goes beyond normal. Eric learns to cope with this as well as a hearing loss in one ear and figuring out that he is really gay. This was truly a pleasure to read.
