And I wanted to thank him (B. thompson stroud) for writing it.

Special thanks, to Aranea, for being all Waterslides and Dandelions.

There's a good review of the book up at Whatever-Dude.Com :

This book screams to be made into a screenplay. A man like Hughes could easily take this and turn it into the film that re-introduces him to the teenage audience he lost 20 years ago. It is, in essence, the mind of Generation "Why" on paper for all the world to see, the truest definition of that lost middle state between 19 and 22 that I've ever read, that gap in our lives where we no more know who we were before than we know who we are or one day will be. It is a painful, sorrowful trip to a town of people who seemed blinded by their yearning for a personal Savior. It is love, loss, isolation, anger, hatred, wrestling, retribution, Nintendo, pain, grilled cheese sandwiches, and lost opportunity, all bound in two hundred and twenty-nine pages of softbound life. And that's the greatest compliment I can give it.

Damn, I have GOT to get a copy of this book ... A far cry from posts about Team Rocket and Curry Man, but sounds like a fascinating read nonetheless.
