John McNally, The Boy Who Really, Really Wanted to Have Sex: The Memoir of a Fat Kid John McNally, The Boy Who Really, Really Wanted to Have Sex: The Memoir of a Fat Kid Wednesday, December 6, 7pm In his first memoir, John gives readers an honest and often mischievous look at his working-class childhood in Midwestern America. This intimate, biting look into John’s transient family takes readers through two states, five grade schools, 210 pounds, and a lifetime of insecurity. Like Dickens’s David Copperfield, he hopes to be the hero of his own story, but unlike David Copperfield, he is a fat boy who breaks kids’ noses in karate and has fantasies of living in a nudist camp with his kindergarten teacher. He saves his family at age four but unwittingly commits a felony at age eight. From an explosive night living in an Illinois trailer park to tumultuous father-son bonding at the flea market, John gives the skinny on life being fat. Hilarious and poignant, John shows readers that, in the end, remembering one’s bitter past can, in fact, be sweet. John McNally is the author of After the Workshop, America’s Report Card, and The Book of Ralph. His work has appeared in over a hundred publications, including The Sun, Virginia Quarterly Review, and The Washington Post. He divides his time between Lafayette, Louisiana and Winston-Salem, North Carolina. Event date: Wednesday, December 6, 2017 - 7:00pm Event address: 304 S. Elm St. Greensboro, NC 27401
