A Holden Caufield with acne vulgaris, Andy is born in North Carolina too late to be a hippy and too early to be a programmer, just in time to live through the Carter administration and the era of lowered expectations. Spurned by his peers, who call him "Pizza Face", Andy embarks on a wild campaign for truth and beauty, chasing idols from North Carolina to Washington, D.C.

Review: Pizza Face: Or the Hero of Suburbia

User Review  - George Ilsley - Goodreads

Read this one several years ago, and recall enjoying the dark humour. Just re-read it and didn't care for it very much. The three star rating is probably and average of the two readings. Found it more sad than funny, this time around. Read full review
