Praise For Here Comes Trouble: Stories from My Life…
"Mr. Moore's coming of age as a working-class malcontent is...something to behold. It's the story of a big lunk who learns to yoke his big mouth to a sense of purpose. It persuades you to take Mr. Moore seriously, and it belongs on a shelf with memoirs by, and books about, nonconformists like Mother Jones, Abbie Hoffman, Phil Ochs, Rachel Carson, Harvey Pekar and even Thomas Paine. "
With the book's emotional highs and lows, and self-deprecating, empathetic style, Moore triumphs. Regardless of which side of the political fence readers are on, they're sure to find this collection enlightening, engaging, and occasionally enraging."
From the pleasures of night baseball to family arguments over long hair and Vietnam to early forays into politics, Moore turns in a readable, and often quite funny, American story. Indeed, Moore considers himself a patriot; as he writes, 'if you see his movies, you will instantly know that I deeply love this country.' This spirited, most welcome book is more evidence of that affection."
"Written with restraint and grace...confirms [Moore's] reputation as a great storyteller and reveals himself to be an insightful memoirist...touching and revealing stories drawn from a fascinating life."
