Ken Michaels bronco-ride to adulthood begins with his dismissal from his Canadian lifeguard dream-job. It passes through his parents small southern town, rife with s attitudes, before he enters the University of Richmond.His misadventures in Canada, with the townspeople, his roommate Mason Dixon, his friend Buddy Stone, the campus coeds, and his first love Jeanie, all add gas to the fire.After his freshman and sophmore years at the U of R, Ken is still chasing whatever it is hes chasing, but at least hes not screaming anymore.KM is a steady stream of slapstick, nostalgic, insightful, sentimental, and often hilarious, told at the narrators own expense."When I was a boy of 14 my father was so ignorant, I could hardly stand to have the old man around. But when I got to be 21, I was astonished at how much he had learned in seven years. Mark Twain.Ken Michaels still has two years to go before he comes to this realizaton.Weve all been there.
