High school boys would love G Bowering's new memoir, PINBOY, but I'm afraid it will prob be banned in most school libraries. It's a fabulously funny, eminently wise, devilishly dirty book about being 15 years old. I loved it! Since reading it, I've also read his other memoir, A MAGPIE LIFE - an entertaining look at how he got to be George Bowering.
