Publisher's Summary

Pulitzer Prize-winner Michael Dirda shares his love for all literature - novels, comic books, poetry, even erotica - in this humorous memoir of his childhood. Growing up in a bluecollar, Midwestern household of the 50s and 60s, Dirda appalled his father with his insatiable thirst for reading. His humorous remembrances of the works he loved will spark the interest of anyone who savors a good story.
