The hilarious, but often poignant, sometimes tragic memoirs of Sam McQuade, a boy raised Catholic in the 50s and 60s on the plains of North Dakota, his schooling in an era of harsh Catholic discipline, his coming of age year studying in France, the tragic deaths of two brothers which changed his life and brought him back to Bismarck to enter the family beer business. If you like David Sedaris you will like There Is a Road in North Dakota. The stories are just as funny but Sam's family and the people he grew up under were even more dysfunctional.

Sam nails the accents and is easy to listen to.
Listening to the author speak with the various accents...and sing a song in German he learned in childhood.
His brother Sean was my favorite, maybe because I knew him. He was honest in his depiction of his brother, who was funny and endearing.
There were two places in the recording that skipped to a different part of the book, so I think I missed some of the book as it was written.
