You NEED to read this book
This fine work of literature is a sampling, a toe in the water, if you will, of some of the most popular lists compiled during the original run of the Escaped from LA blog, cataloging a particularly ridiculous time during which I came of age.
The formative years of my adult life were a unique experience, happening during the height of the recession and the subsequent recovery. This work highlights the need for comic relief during difficult times, and also provides some foreshadowing into the cultural phenomena we are seeing today.
In addition to the original lists, I have written updated reactions and reflections for 2016 to illustrate the evolution, devolution and stagnation of human nature observed during this time period.
No matter your age or life stage, you will absolutely remember and be able to relate and identify with at least one if not more of the experiences discussed in this book.
This book is filled with my thoughts, my stories, my opinions, and everything that went through my head, or at least what I had time to put to words during my self-imposed exile from the City of Angels, and my reactions to those words all these years later in 2016.
Stay awhile. Read on. It'll be fun. I promise.
