9780060931889: Lummox: The Trials and Triumph of a Modern Man with More Muscle Than Money (and a Whole Lot of Heart)

The lummox is Mike Magnuson, your friendly neighborhood big guy with a foul mouth, a spare tire around his midsection, and a tender heart, and these are his years working in factories, hanging out in taverns, befriending reprobates, going to college,having troubles with the law, and living with crazy jazz musicians and lesbianseparatists. When a mysterious phantom enters his life, he sets off on a quest todiscover the true meaning of lummoxness, and what he learns along the way is both shocking and hilarious.

Written with honesty and self-effacing wry humor, Lummox is an exceptional story of manhood at a time of its redefinition, a book that will leave you laughing out loud in recognition and cheering for lummoxes everywhere.

“A wild, unseemly, entertaining elegy...graphic, edgy, and pretty much kick ass. Lummox is totally cool reading.” (Kirkus Reviews)
