Young adult novelist Chris Crutcher's "ill-advised autobiography" is a collection of laugh-out-loud stories about growing up in the fifties and early sixties. Crutcher also reflects on how childhood events influenced his adult life and dual careers as a writer and therapist. There are lessons to be found--about managing anger, for example. And fans will pick up on some of the same themes--like sports--that run through his books WHALE TALK and STAYING FAT FOR SARAH BYRNES. Crutcher is a pleasant and competent reader, and hearing the author relate his own personal story makes for an intimate listening experience. Teens--particularly boys--may find a kindred spirit in the young Chris whom Crutcher so flawlessly re-creates. J.M.D. © AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/NOV 05]
