A hilarious novel of short stories about childhood memories,
By A Customer
This review is from: Wanda Hickey's Night of Golden Memories: And Other Disasters (Paperback)
Shepherd has an excellent flair for comedy. He uses outrageous exaggerations and detailed descriptions to have the reader in tears of laughter. The stories are very easy to relate to because of their dealings with common events. These include the county fair, the high school prom, and one's first love. The novel also offers insight on life in the 1930's and 1940's. Children play with tops and the family listens to the radio for entertainment. A turkey dinner at home is quite an expense. Overall, the book is quite entertaining and hard to put down.
