Overview
Hilarious This book brings memories kicking and screaming from the recesses of the history of life in the second half of the twentieth century. Howard Jones rides the crest of the baby boom wave as he grows up in the American Midwest. History's bookshelves contain volumes about the lives of kings and generals, but offer little about the lives of the common people. This book is an exception to that rule. Dunderhead was born into a blue collar family in the wake of World War II. No topic is off limits. From sex to religion, from virtue to vice, love and lust, racism and prejudice - it's all in here. And it will make you smile. His stories bring humor and warmth to the struggles of growing up and striving to make it in a land that promises opportunity. His stories confirm and validate that promise. Dunderhead is both proud, but humble. He is a dreamer, but a realist. He plays by the rules, but pushes the envelope. He's pleased with his world, but is constantly trying to change it. He strives to fail so that he might succeed. He's disciplined, but without structure. Searching for Dunderhead is a fun read, but below the surface lurk the realities, the hardships and the struggles of becoming a man in Middle America. Dunderhead was an uncommonly common human being just like everyone else except different.
