"Running pal’s campaign to be Playgirl’s Man of the Year. At 13."

By Kate Tuttle GLOBE CORRESPONDENT  JUNE 02, 2017


"required reading" - departures

"Cove’s bawdy, warm-hearted recollection is anything but a mope. Not only do Lou and Howie turn Salem on its ear, but Howie gives Lou fodder for a breakthrough with his own Dad, too."


"hilarious & poignant!" PEOPLE MAGAZINE

"If you helped your dad's friend campaign for Playgirl's man of the year in ’78, wouldn't you write a book about it? Cove did, and it's both hilarious and poignant.”

Jewish Book Council Review

“The type of family represented here is so rich, so varied, and recalled with such warmth that the book stands apart from its genre. Swirling with ideas about what it means to be an adult, this story of one Jewish boy’s awkward and sometimes painful adolescence builds to a crescendo where it’s unclear Lou will ever have his bar mitzvah, but it’s clear that he’s figuring out how to become a man.”
