Zevin is a master humorist who delivers his message quickly and with a punch. So you can imagine that I related to Dan Zevin's confessions of uncoolness in this very funny book. The absolute highlight of the collection is Zevin's essay which alternates passages from his journal during his junior year abroad with his experiences fifteen years later visiting his younger brother in Spain. Junior year was THE MOST INTENSE experience, closing down bars, being "stoked," sleeping in train stations, and finding truth and beauty in music and literature.
Dan Zevin is so uncool he’s cool. So you can imagine that I related to Dan Zevin's confessions of uncoolness in this very funny book
Dan Zevin is so uncool he’s cool. His cogent and hilarious self-deprecations are literature’s answer to the elasticized waistband: They forgive. Zevin's humor is so fresh and clever that you have to forgive him for hanging onto his frat boy mentality into his thirties and instead laugh out loud. I highly recommend this book for people who, like Zevin (and me), feel as though they suddenly woke up realizing they're too old for doing Jello shots until 3 . but just old enough to serve Jello parfaits to their dinner party guests. 3 people found this helpful.
