“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.”

Description

"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.
