Item Details
Summary:

Metaxas reveals a personal story few have heard, taking us from his mostly happy childhood--and riotous triumphs at Yale--to the nightmare of drifting toward a dark abyss of meaninglessness from which he barely escapes. As the Queens-born son of Greek and German immigrants struggles to make sense of a world in which he never quite seems to fit, he introduces readers to an unforgettable troupe of picaresque characters, while underscoring just how funny, serious, happy, sad, and ultimately meaningful life can be. -- adapted from jacket
