CRAIG MACHEN'S "STILL LIFE WITH BRASS POLE" (REVIEW)

This book commemorates a 16 year old boy's summer with his father, full of drugs and exotic living to find his mother leaving town. His girlfriend is pregnant and through the story he is mulling over how he's hoping she never finds out about his sordid visit after deciding to settled down with her only to find out she's moved to Texas. He decides to pack up his losses and go on a search for his own idea of family.

This is a coming of age story, with undertones of humor. Thoroughly enjoyable.
