About this title

Synopsis:

DESCRIPTION: Sandwiched between the greed-is-bad 60's and the greed-is-good 80's, lies a generation defined as much by its cynicism and withdrawal as the Flapper youth of the 20's. Recovering from Vietnam, Watergate, and the deaths of most of the 60's political and rock and roll icons required a great deal of...partying.

So if you took the coming of age exploration of American Graffiti, combined it with the hi-jinx of Animal House, dosed it liberally with the drug and alcohol craziness of Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, and then set it at Penthouse Magazines #3 party school of 1974, you'd have a good feel for Troutman Penthouse 1975.

Illustrated by Brian Kelly, this autobiographical story revolves around a very naive 17 year old who finds himself on the top floor (hence 'Penthouse') of a coed dorm stuffed to the roof with nothing but 'first time away from home' freshmen. This eight story stage for strutting and fretting is isolated by the rolling farmlands and sandy pine forests surrounding Central Michigan University. Affectionately referred to as 'The Zoo', it is the launching pad for keggers, streaking, road trips, witnessing the first KISS tour, sexual exploration, Disco decadence, attending the legendary Hash Bash, and...cracking jokes at an autopsy.

Join Bobwhite, Governor Blondy, Boo Boo, Airforce, Farmer, Pewamo, Goatbeater, Rollo, Brucey the Youper, Bing and Bong and the rest of the gang as they ride a wave of 70's madness in this memoir of a lost generation.

From the Author:

AUTHCOMMENTS: Growing up a 'clean cut' kid in the 'Burbs of Detroit did not prepare me for the sudden freedom and easy drugs of college. However, I did have a hell of a lot of fun exploring this fantasy candy-land. I think I even went to some classes. Our floor ended the year with the lowest collective grade point average and the highest collective damage bill of any floor on campus. Yoohoo!
