Daring, wise, hilarious, and tender, this exhilarating collection of seven linked essays by Cheston Knapp tackles Big Questions through seemingly unlikely avenues: an examination of a local professional wrestling promotion becomes a meditation on pain and his relationship with his father; a profile on UFO enthusiasts ends up probing his history in the church and, more broadly, the nature and limits of faith itself; attending an adult skateboarding camp launches him into a virtuosic analysis of nostalgia; and the shocking murder of a neighbor expands into an interrogation of our culture's prevailing ideas about community and the way we tell the stories of our lives. Even more remarkable, perhaps, is the way he manages to find humanity in a damp basement full of frat boys. Taken together, the essays amount to a chronicle of a young man's journey into adulthood, and his formative experiences ultimately tilt at what may be the Biggest Q of them all: what are the hazards of becoming who you are?
