Meet the Authors
It's New York City in the 1980s and Ted Rall is in college. Everything
is fine before his pranks, lack of focus and restlessness get him
expelled. Unable to find a job and rejected by his parents, he
considers suicide. By happenstance he finds comfort in the arms of
many women as he bed-hops around the five boroughs. It's better
than homelessness, but the psychic toll of selling himself and his
affection was higher than he imagined.
Both acidly funny and brutally honest, Rall, a cartoonist both
beloved and reviled for his edgy politics, pours out his guts in this
remembrance of this most difficult chapter in his life.
