Summary
  • "One-half of the celebrated Men in Blazers duo, longtime culture and soccer commentator Roger Bennett traces the origins of his love affair with America, and how he went from a depraved, pimply faced Jewish boy in 1980's Liverpool to become the quintessential Englishman in New York"--
  • Being a teenager isn't easy, no matter where in the world you live. As a private-schooled Jewish kid in working-class, heavily Catholic Liverpool, Bennett had one ideal that burned bright in his heart: America, with its sunny skies, beautiful women, and cool kids with flipped collars who ate at McDonald's. He embraced American popular culture, and made a real, in-the-flesh American friend who invited him over for the summer. His book captures the universality of growing pains, growing up, and growing out of where you come from. This is both a unique coming-of-age story and the love letter to America that the country needs right now. -- adapted from jacket
