"George Tabb's strength springs from being one of the most unpretentious punk veterans of the last quarter century out there. From adventures in little league to routinely getting pummelled by kids in suburban Greenwich and his own father, Tabb draws readers into his own existence, allowing all who dare a peek into his isolated, disturbing, hilarious and rebellious moments." - Resonance "Tabb recounts his experiences with exploding crucified frogs, rapist dogs, homicidal turtles and astronaut hamsters. It's a fantasy many readers will recognize. Tabb's writing captures the spirit and mindset of childhood beautifully." - The New York Press "Raucous...Tabb's wry recollections of growing up will be darkly funny and all-too-familiar to anyone who still smarts at memories of middle school." - Publishers Weekly"
