Lost In Place: Growing Up Absurd in Suburbia (Google eBook)
From the author of Iron & Silk comes a charming and frequently uproarious account of an American adolescence in the age of Bruce Lee, Ozzy Osborne, and Kung Fu. As Salzman recalls coming of age with one foot in Connecticut and the other in China (he wanted to become a wandering Zen monk), he tells the story of a teenager trying to attain enlightenment before he's learned to drive.
From the Trade Paperback edition.

Nicely written memoir about Salzman's odd and goofy childhood. The characters ring true, and the absurdities made me smile. Worthwhile, though not as riveting as his True Notebooks. Read full review

reminded me of Night of the Comet, very similar dad. some parts were really funny, especially the martial arts. didn't really tell a story; rambling. I liked Iron and Silk better. Read full review
