Okay, all of you who said you'd wait for the paperback when the Kindle came out, now's your chance to make good. Please go here to order. Many thanks. And of course the Kindle version is still available right here.
Seriously, it would make a great Father's Day gift and if you order now you'll have it in plenty of time. Trust me, Dad doesn't want a brunch. He wants THIS.
Here are two reviews -- one from someone I don't even know. Tomorrow I review the Tonys (not that anyone will watch them).
Fun and funny stuff....an entertaining look back at the 60's through the eyes of a normal L.A. valley boy... insightful and dead-on. The Claudine Longet chapter was worth the price of the book by itself! Jam-packed with hilarious morsels, this book is nice because it's not some cheap 120 page double spaced nothing like one often seems to find in books attempting comedy. Anyone who grew up during or around this decade is sure to love it. ...Amusing and enjoyable read!
Ken Levine is a true pro and gentleman who writes with amazing charm, candor, insight and self-deprecation. The man's humanity comes shining through on every page. It's the story of a real guy telling a real story about a genuine slice of American life, not another navel-gazing treatise on the tumult we've heard a million times before. You emerge from this quick and exhilarating read feeling like this a guy you want to know better. He isn't afraid to show his nerdy warts or to admit he loves his parents. Indeed, something emerges in the prose that's uplifting and unexpected: We see a side of the '60s we haven't experienced before -- the real side featuring ordinary people leading ordinary lives. There's a sublime grace in that. Bravo to Ken for a book that's as honest as it is entertaining.
