The warm, hilarious story of the author's outrageously "different" childhood and intense relationship with his colorful, hopelessly narcissistic mother, who realizes he is gay even before he does, in a small town in East Texas.
The New York Times - Janet Maslin
…the book's bright moments arrive with winning regularity. And at his best [Leleux] delivers gallows humor with a sprightly flair…In order to best tell these stories, Mr. Leleux says, he has corrected lighting, reduced puffiness and "altered outmoded skirt lengths," figuratively speaking. This leaves some of his anecdotes sounding too adorable to be true. But mostly they are bright and well chosen, with a sense of the wider world incorporated into even the most parochial boyhood stories.
