Description
In this enormously appealing implied autobiography, Merry Prankster Ed McClanahan has assembled a gathering of what he calls coming-of-age to coming-of-old-age stories that are both quirky and cutting, hilarious and lyrical, all told in the inimitable voice of one of his generations best southern chroniclers of American life. The tale begins in 1950, the year he turned 17 and, from there, McClanahan is off and running, describing characters from his eventful life with affectionate and precise detail. Theres the summer he spends on a road crew in Yosemite National Park, striving (with ever-decreasing degrees of success) to be faithful to his college sweetheart back home. Theres the McClanavanthe 68 VW Microbus that took McClanahan and his new bride on a 14,000-mile trek in search of honky-tonks. Theres the 1969 peace demonstration at Stanford University that was less a revolution than a traffic jam. McClanahan and his stories come alive as American souvenirs, enchanting readers with his signature prose in this stunning piece of memoirabilia.
