And you will laugh until you cry.
Brett Palomar
The descriptive storytelling by Patrick Hughes will make you read this book as fast as you can because you want to know more.
M. Levine
You feel you are transported right into the zany and ridiculous situations that Mr. Hughes thinks of as everyday life.

Hughes is able to tell his stories with both humor and humanity. Everyone has tales of growing up, but this book is written at a level of skill very few story tellers could come close too even if their adventures were as notable. Through most of the book you will find yourself laughing out loud, but at least one chapter choked me up to the point I pronounced it as "the saddest thing I've ever read". Do yourself a favor and buy this book.

Patrick Hughes is an evil brilliant genius, carving his niche out of the publishing world with blood and bone and poo water.

You should buy this book. Not only will it make you smarter and better looking, it will also make you laugh until you cry. I'm not just saying this because he thanks me in the intro, either. He is a hilarious man, and this is an epic book of hilarious stories, well-told.

It feels good to laugh so hard you weep, and if you want to feel good like that, this is the book to get you there. Pat Hughes suffers the indignities, so you don't have do, and believe me there are woes visited upon this man the likes of which you have never imagined. Hughes' writing is engaging, and the whole thing is like sitting on the front porch with a world-class yarn spinner, slapping your thigh and guffawing every few minutes until everyone has to pause to catch their breath. Truly a must-have book.

8 of 8 people found the following review helpful By TMG on June 19, 2007
Format: Paperback
Though this isn't overtly a book about punk-rock, I think it does a terrific job of conveying the spirit of the G'ville p-rock scene, at least as I experienced it from the mid-80s through the early 90s -- unpredictable, wild, sometimes downright dangerous, other times oddly quaint.

Patrick has more guts than I'm ever gonna have. Probably the same is true for you -- check out just how much he has to say about unrequited love, family dysfunctionality, rectal problems, roommate issues or saltwater catfish -- chances are you'll end up thinking "damn, how does this guy manage to show his face in public after all this?"

He's a damn writer, that's how.

Check it out....

Pat Hughes is this generations David Sedaris-poignant, funny and pithy, Diary of Indignities is delightful at every turn.

An unsuspected triumph for all ages!

Format: Paperback
You have no idea what you are 1 click away from enjoying.

If Augusten Burroughs was an autobiographical (I, um mean, fiction) writer or if Chuck Palahniuk grew up in the south, or if "The Rooster" Sedaris wrote I think they would all be hanging out at the same bar swapping stories.

This raw, real and self-deprecating writer will take you on a journey, will make you laugh out loud, will make you think (partly make you think you should write your own memoirs... but don't it wouldn't be as funny or well written).

Kudos to the newest member of a great tradition

I nursed Patrick Hughes as a baby and reading this book has been a similar experience -- painful but intensely rewarding.

Format: Paperback
For people who read a lot, it is still surprising to laugh out loud, open your mouth in surprise, gasp at the horror, open your eyes wide in disbelief or shedding a tear from hilarity or sadness just from reading a book. All of these things will happen when you read this book. The descriptive storytelling by Patrick Hughes will make you read this book as fast as you can because you want to know more. I can definitely relate to many of the stories that he tells, but in no way is anyone else's life nearly as crazy.
