The story of a Missouri boy who grew up in a wonderful family of characters. He was Gay , but his family accepted him unconditionally. He was especially close to his grandmothers. A major tragedy happens at this point, which causes eating disorders and depression . As he became an adult, he lived a very promiscuous lifestyle , so be prepared if you don't like a lot of that in your books, which I don't. Other than that, a good book.

#recommendsday. One of my all time faves. Love memoirs about everyday dysfunctional families....cause we are all dysfunctional in our own way and it's perfectly fine 😊

AmandaL I read At Least in the City when I first moved out to the country. I felt like a fish out of water, and he so exactly and humorously captured that experience. I will have to read this, because I loved that book. 3y
