"Not Exactly Rocket Scientists and Other Stories is a collection of "mostly, mostly true" short stories of life "writ small" in a suburban town in the 1950s and 1960s. Tied together by a certain sense of time and place, each story nevertheless stands well on its own, a nod to those with attention spans about as short as ours. In school, in sports, in the summer season of peak boyhood idiocy and even in church, we engaged the world in happy abandon, our band of buddies quick to find chaos and stupid just about anywhere. In the tradition of writers like Jean Shepherd and Garrison Keillor, our stories enjoy few triumphs, and even these were scarcely noted. Our failures, however, were many, although rarely the stuff of tragedy."
