Editorial Reviews

Review

From The San Francisco Book Review:
...Memorable passages that will yank at your heart, and even more that will make you laugh. I loved this book...
--Laura Friedkin

From The Kindle Book Review:
Never have disgusting, miserable living conditions been so funny. When someone finally finds a way to send back a report from hell, I hope it will be Lance Pototschnik. Except this guy is going to heaven, for the way he writes.

Reading this book, you'll learn many lessons that you may or may not find applicable to your own life. When a crocodile drags you underwater by the arm, roll with it so the arm doesn't separate from your body right away. When you stay up all night protecting baby turtles, try to be philosophical when the dog eats all of them. And when you're burning a huge ball of used toilet paper on a windy day, get the fire going as quickly as possible.

Pototschnik imagines that the trip might help him answer the question, "Who is this being that calls himself Lance Pototschnik? And what the hell will he do with his life?" I won't spoil the fun by telling you whether he gets the answer. But I know what I want him to do with his life. I want him to write, to keep writing, and to never stop writing. He may not be the best turtle wrangler or toilet paper igniter you ever met, but he is one of the most entertaining memoirists I've encountered in my own long life.
--Mark Myers 

About the Author

Lance Pototschnik was born, raised and educated in rural Maryland. He is the author and cover artist of The Shell of a Person and Hollywood Ending, memoirs which have established him as a master of achieving poignancy through a mix of anguish and humor.
