Fans of David Sedaris, the movie "A Christmas Story", or NPR’s This American Life, will appreciate the mix of humor and trauma in Watch Out For Sneaker Waves.
What’s harder: being a child of parents who don’t understand or being a father who doesn’t understand his children?
Surviving childhood isn’t easy. Dodging bullies, losing your three-old-brother in a forest, and evading vomit while trapped in a car are just some of the obstacles.
Getting a driver's license and a little freedom doesn’t make things better. You have to pay for gas, repairs, and explain that you were involved in a drive-by shooting while trying to sell low-flush toilets.
Growing up might be worse. You have to clean up the children’s poop and spit-up. Dealing with a three year old nudist is almost enough to make you wish you could go back and live with your own nutty parents again. Almost.
