About this title

Synopsis:


"A walking badass of a book."—Rolling Stone


"Don is a great writer. His work is worth reading." -- Henry Rollins

Hallucinating between childhood and manhood, Eddie Burnett is both hero and anti-hero in this hard-hitting collection of linked stories. Coming of age in California's post-war suburbs and freefalling through the turbulence of the sixties and early seventies, Eddie's transformation from a boy's innocence to a man's hardened wariness is captured in lyrical, emotionally raw episodes. He navigates the minefields of American masculinity in a series of disturbing, yet strangely uplifting odysseys, from hope to despair and back again.


Author, screenwriter, actor, and performer Don Bajema lives in New York City.
