A Long Way from Disney - Part I
Summary: In this podiobook:
You've caught up with the author...
We meet Adam Berkman at age 6, on vacation on Cape Cod.
Werner Ehrhardt, EST, and a family traveling through Western Mass. on the way to Rochester, NY. Just a regular family, sorting things out.
Just another day of summer heat in Boston, except on this day Rachel pees on the floor of McDonald's, Adam misses the Top Five, and...
It's the 6th grade slow-dancing party!! What could be more exciting and erotic than that? (For an 11-year-old boy?)
They called me wigger and one time this old bag bitch told me, "Keep running with the monkeys and you'll end up back in the jungle with that black girl, swinging from a vine."
More with Adam and Dub. The long hot summer continues...
Adam comes back from college and finds some things have changed... and that some things haven't.
Adam and Amy go for a walk in the park, which is great except for what's happening with Adam and Sarah. (Or Amy and Bill.)
Adam's mother has a new friend, Vaughn. Adam and Vaughn don't quite get along.
Post college, Adam's living scared in the city, taking everything he can from every moment, listening to drum and bass, digging his own hole.
Elizabeth Richard has been having a hard time dealing with her husband's Parkinson's Disease, but she's doing her best. Tonight they get a visit from a neighbor who brings a new perspective.
Adam has been waking up in the middle of the night too often. Now, with Corinne, he has someone to tell his stories.
Two-for-one on this Mother's Day special. Michigan finds Adam in with his grandmother, and Cherry Tree shows him finding a new sympathy for his mother.
