Letters To My Little Brother: Misadventures In Growing Older

9781518808357: Letters To My Little Brother: Misadventures In Growing Older

Dear Squirrel, my little brother, Growing up sucks. So in February of 2012 — amidst a tumult of mania and spiraling depression — I decided to begin writing these letters to you, the lessons I learned as I transitioned from young adulthood to manhood (or something akin to manhood cause Heaven knows I'm still about as emotionally mature as a baby T-Rex). In them I give you all my hilarious stories and honest advice. The plane flight sitting beside our dead grandfather’s corpse. My first online dating profiles and the fellow ugly, broke misfits I met along the way. My manic fear of STDs, sexting, and severe oral pain. In these letters, I’ve laid my life shamelessly bare for you to see. I apologize in advance if they don’t actually contain any useful tools to maturing. I kind of discovered that they were less about advice for your future and more about the painful awkwardness of my naïve misadventures and the eccentricities of my own imagination. They took on a life of their own, not only as retrospective entertainment for you as my sibling, but also as my own introspective meditation. I’m vain and egocentric. So sue me. I love you always, Matt, your big brother

About the Author:

Matt McKinney is a Millennial, a middle-child, and a graduate of Duke University. He studied linguistics, Arabic, German, and film, and currently uses none of those skills. He has held jobs in the TV industry, technology, sales, marketing, and freelance whatever-ing. You name it and Matt has probably tried it. He’s probably also realized he hates doing it. So now he tries to write full-time and make a meager living off it. He loves his younger brother and uses his blog, Boy With Cape, to constantly write him with all the (embarrassing) advice that he wished an older brother had told him. He loves his older sister too, by the way, even if he doesn’t write her often. He hopes to find laughter in all aspects of his life and, more importantly, he looks forward to sharing this (often self-deprecating) humor with you.
