"The kind of book readers fall in love with.”
— Booklist, Starred Review

“A preposterous true tale about one little man's journey into adulthood. I came for the adventures with the male centerfold, but I stayed for the break-your-heart portrait of a nuclear family teetering between enlightenment and core meltdown.”
― Jill Soloway, creator of Transparent

“This book is about a lot of things: fatherhood, religion, friendship, nostalgia and, of course, male nipples. It’s got something for everyone. And best of all, it’s told in Lou’s voice: funny, touching and compelling. Doesn’t even need a centerfold.” 
― A.J. JacobsNew York Times bestselling author of The Year of Living Biblically

"Hilarious, fun and surprisingly touching. You'll instantly fall in love with the Cove family and the surrounding cast of eccentric characters, right down to their smelly rabbit. Man of the Year has my vote." 
― Dan Marshall, author of Home is Burning

“Cove has a light touch and an eye for regional and temporal detail… Most who either recall or are curious about this free-loving period of history will find themselves satisfied by Cove's re-creation of his journey out of boyhood.”
