Sea Monkeys PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Sea Monkeys free pdf Bowling lessons with a hunchback. A bizarre first-grade teacher who hallucinates in class. A tragically innocent family blind-sided by flower power, and the salvation of soul music at a radio station straight out of a Quentin Tarantino version of The Twilight Zone. These are just a few of the luminous characters and conjurings Kris Saknussemm delivers in his kaleidoscopic Sea Monkeys--the story of his growing up in the counterculture San Francisco Bay Area and central California in the 1960s. Known for his genre-bending works "Zanesville" and "Private Midnight," Saknussemm now gives us a highly original take on the nonfiction memoir, in which he shatters the stained glass windows of his father's church and mixes the pieces with ghost cartoons, the Cronkite contradictions of Civil Rights demonstrations, and ads for laxatives during a strange hiatus in American sanity when Sly Stone and Perry Como could both be in the Top 10. Honest, funny, and at times heartbreaking, Sea Monkeys is the no-holds-barred tale of one of our most exciting contemporary authors' own coming of age, and the perfect follow-up to Saknussemm's "Zanesville," which "Booklist" hailed as "one of the most creative, edgy, and entertaining novels spawned in a decade."
