9781934606322: The Feedstore Chronicles

Welcome to Pearl's Feed and Seed Most coming-of-age stories are fraught with symbolism, hidden metaphors, and a heaping mound of other literary devices. Not this one. Not mine. You see, I came of age while working at a dusty Texas feedstore. A place where To Kill a Mockingbird involved a twelve-year-old and a BB gun. Of Mice and Men was a problem easily solved with rat poison. And David Copperfield was nothing more than a dude that made shit disappear. In the spring of 1989, I went to work at Pearl's Feed and Seed for a man named Doyle Suggs. On the surface Doyle and I had little in common: I was a rosy-cheeked boy of sixteen; he was a twice-divorced, thirty-year-old high school dropout. I had yet to go on my first date; he was trading sex for horse feed in the back room. Sure, Doyle was a lout, a liar, and a lecherous derelict. To this day, he remains the most morally bankrupt man I've ever met, yet my life wouldn't be half as blessed, had I missed out on his misguided education. The Feedstore Chronicles is a mostly true account of those days and when murderous ex-wives, well-hung bulldogs, and feed room fornication were all part of a normal day at Pearl's.

Product Description:

Most coming-of-age stories are fraught with symbolism, hidden metaphors, and a heaping mound of other literary devices. Not this one. Not mine. You see, I came of age while working at a dusty Texas feed store. A place where To Kill a Mockingbird involved a twelve-year-old and a BB gun. Of Mice and Men was a problem easily solved with rat poison. And David Copperfield, nothing more than a dude that made shit disappear. 

The Feedstore Chronicles is a mostly true account of my education amongst murderous ex-wives, a well-hung bulldog, and feed room fornication.

Review:

What are little boys made of? Not frogs and snails and puppy-dogs' tails if you're Travis Erwin. "The Feedstore Chronicles" is his witty, coming-of-age story complete with headless parakeets, castrated piglets, 50 pound feed sacks, angry emus, cock fights and fist fights and pick-up truck driving, hard-living cowboys and their bosomy and equally hard living Texas women. "The Feedstore Chronicles" is like stepping through the looking-glass and finding yourself in another world filled with a zany cast of Lone Star State characters and humorous tales. In other words, a fun read! This book was laugh-out-loud hilarious, to the point where my eruptions of giggling annoyed those around me! I most enjoyed the candid and unflinchingly honest recounting of awkward situations involving equally quirky and eccentric people. Travis Erwin's engaging, heartfelt writing gets you hooked (shocked) from page one, keeps you entertained (in a morbidly curious way), and by the end, you feel like taking your new buddy Travis out for a beer. A fabulous read, highly recommended!
