Not your typical coming of age story

Funny, happy, sad, melancholic
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.
