In stuck.at.seven [while awkwardly aiming for ten], Edmund Christopher McCombs chronicles some of his life's more inappropriate moments through a series of short stories using an unusual lack of shame, normally only reserved for street-walkers and reality t.v. stars. You see, we all want to be a 10, but let’s face it - that’s just not going to happen. Somewhere along the way, we get stuck. Seemingly unable to break free from our self-imposed entrapment, we have to face the truth and own our awkwardness and through his stories, Edmund attempts just that. Unabashedly funny, yet intimately relatable, the stories within stuck.at.seven [while awkwardly aiming for ten] are relayed in a genuine tone that transcends the page as Edmund provides some jaw dropping shock and a smidgen of "oh-no-he-didn't-just-go-there" awe. While this book is about Edmund's journey and mishap-filled perspectives; the universal topics of growing up ugly, passive aggressively loathing an evil boss and, as a child, discovering that your favorite Disney classic has been taped over with midget-infused adult entertainment, really resonate to the wider audience. Simply put, being stuck.at.seven is about embracing all of the awkwardness and self-doubt that capture us all. Edmund is just putting it out there for your judgement and the potential self-infliced public shaming he'll receive. So, if you’ve ever been stuck in a job, stuck in a relationship, stuck in a rut, stuck in the small, circular suction drain that lines your Grandma's swimming pool attempting to quell the teenage hormones raging inside of you - you’re in the right place. However, if you’ve ever been called a prude by your loved ones, you should probably leave now, or carry on and prove them wrong.
"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.
Edmund Christopher McCombs is from the non-fancy side of Florida, but currently lives "down under" in Sydney, Australia. He began writing as an outlet to cope with the craziness that sometimes lives in his head, as opposed to beating people up. But, with his small arms and lack of coordination, writing was probably the best choice anyways.
