Misfit: Growing Up Awkward in the '80s by Gary Gulman EPUB
A tour de force of comedy and reflection about the perilous journey from kindergarten to twelfth grade and beyondâfrom the beloved stand-up comic and creator of The Great Depresh
For years, Gary Gulman had been the comedianâs comedian, acclaimed for his delight in language and his bracing honesty. But after two stints in a psych ward, he found himself back in his motherâs house in Bostonâliving in his childhood bedroom at age forty-six, as he struggled to regain his mental health.
Thatâs where Misfit begins. Then it goes way back.
This is no ordinary book about growing older and growing up. Gulman has an astonishing memory and takes the reader through every year of his childhood education, with obsessively detailed stories that are in turn alarming and riotously funny. We meet Gulmanâs family, neighbors, teachers, heroes, and antagonists, and get to know the young comedian-in-the-making who is his own worstâand most persistentâenemy.
From failing to impress at grade school show-and-tell to literally fumbling at his first big football gameâin settings that take us all the way from the local playground to the local mall, from Hebrew School to his best (and only) friendâs rec room, young Gary becomes a stand-in for everyone who grew up wondering if they would ever truly fit in. And thatâs not all: the book is also chock-full of â80s nostalgia (Scented Markers, indifference to sunscreen, mall culture).
Misfit is a book that only Gary Gulman could have written: a brilliant, witty, poignant, laugh-until-your-face-hurts memoir that speaks directly to the awkward child in us all.
