John Hodgman - New York Times best-selling author, semifamous personality, deranged millionaire, increasingly elderly husband, father, and human of Earth - has written a memoir about his cursed travels through two wildernesses: from the woods of his home in Massachusetts, birthplace of rage, to his exile on the coast of Maine, so-called Vacationland, home to the most painful beaches on Earth.

John Hodgeman has a self awareness that grants him a rare sense of humor. This part-memoir part-reflection gives the reader a glimpse into the forces that have shaped his life. If you are a fan of John in any way, you will likely enjoy this book thoroughly.
