With the energetic, raspy voice of a quirky teenager, Johnny Heller draws listeners into this highly amusing look at Hank Fitzpatrick’s life. “My morning gets off to its usual start. I wake up. Masturbate. Eat some bacon and eggs. Drink a cup of heavily creamed and sugared coffee. Have a frank discussion with my father about his testicles.” Heller makes Hank an achingly believable, oversexed, pot-smoking, occasionally drunk 17-year-old obsessed by breasts and Laura, the love of his life. Heller delivers Brian Sweany’s frank, unsentimental dialogue so truthfully that it’s often painful. Heller’s performance is pitch-perfect as Hank awakens to the heartbreak and disillusionment that come with growing up. The sequel, MAKING OUT WITH BLOWFISH, is scheduled for release in 2014. Let’s hope it’s narrated by Heller. S.J.H. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2013, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2013]
