bookshelves: 1983, general-fiction
Read in July, 1983

[These notes were made in 1983:]. Catchy title, eh? And probably about the best thing going for the book, although it has a certain easy style and captures in an almost painfully accurate way the mundane goings-on of reg'lar folks in the reg'lar Mid-West (Canada or the U.S. - it doesn't matter). But what it chronicles - and in chronicling, celebrates - is precisely that sort of late-teen masculine befuddlement, that incessant drive after sex, and the amazing(?) discovery that there's more, that I can have least sympathy with. Maybe I would've enjoyed it when I was 16.
