About this product
- Description100,000 Years in Detention contains personal essays detailing the author's experiences with hydrophobia, tattoos, the Georgia Department of Education, roadkill and more. This book contains over a dozen stories about Gen-Y American life and the speedbumps created by insecurity, fear, courage and hope. Peppered with curiosity and charm, the essays in 100,000 Years ask as many questions as they answer. In To Be Taken Orally with Vodka, Lupsha lends his voice to a childhood friend who struggled with reconciling a prescription-happy series of doctors' visits with the picture of health in America; in The Bump, he relates two anecdotes dealing with pregnancy and his preparedness (or lack thereof) for fatherhood; See! The Tattooed Man! regales all his experiences getting tattoos while cross-cutting their relations to the author's favorite sideshow exhibits. These pieces and ten more paint a portrait of the transition from trying to fit in to pushing against the same.
