“Eric Poole casts a magical spell with his coming-of-age memoir complete with a neurotic mother, rampant bullying, and an on-again, off-again relationship with God. In turns both endearing and hysterical, Poole is sure to charm.”
-- Meaghan Beasley, Island Bookstore, Kitty Hawk, NC


"Gut-splittingly funny...a deeply moving account of a boy's attempt to control his world with his own brand of magic." --People magazine, 4 stars.

Tracey Ullman once described Eric Poole as "the best undiscovered writer I ever met." Now the world can enjoy his achingly honest wit and gift for capturing real life characters in this memoir about growing up in the 1970's with an obsessive-compulsive mother and a crush on Endora from Bewitched.

About the Author

Eric Poole is the secret love child of Fran Lebowitz and David Sedaris. But oddly taller. A VP of marketing for a major media company and the winner of 30+ advertising awards, Eric was once called "the best undiscovered writer I've ever met" by Tracey Ullman, an accolade he continues to live up to. He resides in Los Angeles with his partner of ten years.
