Description
Vacationland is also about Hodgman's wandering in the metaphoric wilderness of his forties, those years when dudes especially must painfully stop pretending to be the children of bright potential they were and settle into the failing bodies of the wiser, weirder dads that they are. Other subjects covered include the horror of freshwater clams, the evolutionary purpose of the mustache, which animals to keep as pets and which to kill with traps and poison, and advice on how to react when the people of coastal Maine try to sacrifice you to their strange god. After three bestselling books of fake facts, Hodgman is finally ready to tell the truth-in the same outlandish, audacious, and inimitable style that has won him fans in every medium he has worked- books, stage, social media, television, and movies. Praise for John Hodgman and his work-
