A wry and entertaining look at family and relationships through the lens of the author's life as an unusual child and gay man. ( )

I enjoyed these essays very much. Some more than others, of course. Several of them made me cry, a few of them made me roll my eyes. I like Rouse's writing a lot, and I'm happy to see that there are still a few of his books yet to read.

His tone is just right, I think- he's not exactly arch and not exactly sentimental but somehow touches both of these extremes and is blessedly, hilariously human. Recommended. ( )

I didn't quite make it through this memoir. Rouse is quite funny, though also a bit lewd and vulgar and relies heavily on shock-value with sexually explicit references on multiple occasions. Mostly, though, it was an easy read and entertaining. Probably not an author I will read again. ( )

What? I can't believe there aren't more people who've rated/ read this book! Wade Rouse is hilarious. He reminds me of Augusten Burroughs and David Sedaris. I picked up this book because Jen Lancaster (another hilarious author) recommended it, and I'm very glad I did. This book basically chronicles Wade's experience with his family and holidays, in the present day and when he was a kid. He is witty and descriptive, and I absolutely recommend reading this and his other books! ( )
