About the Author
Praise For Bad Move…
"Humorous ... Fast-Paced.... the suburbs turn out to be no guarantee of personal safety."
Praise for Last Resort:
"Last Resort is a moving, bittersweet and naturally funny memoir of a young man's coming of age."
--London Free Press
"Engaging...Barclay writes with admirable openness about his dysfunctional family."
"Barclay's straightforward and unadorned prose...lets him subtly convey the crazy-quilt way that life happens: teenage fun bumps into grownup sadness, loved ones can turn troubled or troubling...Barclay's style may seem simple, but the effects he achieves are anything but."
"[Barclay] manages to capture something elusive; the magical, almost ineffable wonder of childhood, where the sense of freedom offered by a nine-horsepower boat, a summer romance or the first serious conversation with an adult offers a promise of life which one rarely shakes off in later years."
