Are you a fan of Freaks and Geeks?
Then you have to read this book "Kick Me" by the creator - Paul Feig. I read it a few years ago and I just saw it on my bookshelf the other night so I'm reading it again. It's a book that details his neurotic childhood growing up in the 70's.
There are so many 70's references in this book that hit home that you'll be cracking up on every page. Unless you didn't grow up in the 70's. Either way, you'll love this book. Trust me. Would I steer you wrong?
His style is similar to David Sedaris. You get the inside look into what's going on in his demented head. Kind of reminds me of me a bit except both of these guys were major wusses. Self described wusses. But just the way that they analyze everything in their heads..every detail..making up scenarios for every situation is pretty much what I do.
I was just reading the part last night where he's talking about health class and everyone was forced to blow into the mouth of Resusci Anne - the rubber doll that teaches you how to give mouth to mouth. He's so germ phobic that he fakes fainting so he doesn't have to do it. Whooops. I gave something away.
Anyways, let me know if you read this book and what you think of it.
