Paul Lisicky remembers being not much like other boys his age, but rather the awkward thirteen-year-old with "arms thick as drinking straws," who composes tunes in his head that he might later send to Folk Mass Today or to the producers of The Partridge Family. Born into a family whose provisional success bumps them up from their immigrant upbringing and into suburban America, Paul puts his creative, undaunted energy into drawing intricate housing-development plans and writing liturgical music, while his younger brothers rescue midcentury modern furniture from the neighbors' trash and open personal branches of major department stores in the family living room.

In these lively, loving essays, Lisicky explores the constant impulse to rebuild the self. With gracious, thoughtful candor and pitch-perfect humor, he explores the very personal realms of childhood dreams and ambitions, adolescent sexual awakenings, and adult realities.
