MEMOIRS

A hilarious memoir of becoming an adult. Each chapter is a confession (“I played golf.” “I am a figure of authority.” “I take pride in my lawn.”) in which Zevin reflects on how, almost without realizing it was happening, he went from a hip, free-wheeling slacker to a responsible suburban husband.

THE DAY I TURNED UNCOOL: CONFESSIONS OF A RELUCTANT GROWN-UP, by Dan Zevin (Villard, 2002)

Don’t miss Zevin’s Web site (www.danzevin.com), where you can read funny essays and see praise for Zevin’s books from luminaries and relatives alike, including P. J. O’Rourke and Zevin’s mom, Linda.
