bookshelves: oregon-pnw, memoir-bio

composed of brief, chronological accounts, a common pornography is kevin sampsell's unabashedly frank memoir. recounting the formative incidents of his youth, sampsell writes with great courage about family drama, sexual exploration, and the inevitable uncertainties of adolescence.
written without pathos, sentimentalism, or apology, kevin never resorts to the banal, woe-is-me affectations that have come to mark so many autobiographical works of late. funny, tragic, touching, and often unbelievable, a common pornography is the true tale of one man's precarious, often arduous, journey into adulthood.

go sixers!
