Way to Go, Smith!
In his award-winning first book, Bob Smith offered up a witty dose of nineties reality with his observations as a happily adjusted gay man. Now, after breaking up with his longtime boyfriend, Tom, Smith takes us back to his painfully normal childhood to see where all the trouble really began. In these hysterical pages, Smith introduces readers to his comically unsympathetic grandmother, who makes light of his carsickness ("Bob only throws up because he's near the window and he can"); his first teacher crush, whose "five-o'clock shadow could plunge a room into darkness"; and his first brush with fame, when he fainted from his chair during a health filmstrip. Moving, ironic, and tinged with recognition, this acerbic collection offers bittersweet, nostalgic fun from a highly original and talented comic author.
