Memoir of a Nerd: Humorous Essays and Short Stories by Hank Mancini is a hilarious memoir that made me think about the fun, carefree moments of my childhood, formative years, and early adult life when it was not considered abuse to prank people. This book is filled with hilarious and humorously told stories. Some of these stories include the camping experience the author had with his friend George and how they ended up meeting a girl called Barbara, who stirred feelings that remained eight hours after. Follow him with his friends, George, Jim, and Bob, as they return from a day at The Pike in Long Beach after riding the Cyclone Racer over and over and the roller coaster as many times as they could, and then playing a prank that left him stranded, walking a long distance home.
There are hilarious stories, pranks, and absurd situations ingeniously written that will entertain any reader. Mancini captures situations from his life, from pranking a delivery man to the exciting and funny moments with his boss, Bob, and the boss’s wife, Joann, and a lot more. He writes with wit and intelligence, keeping each story short and pithy. When you finish one of his stories, the humor and the beauty of it will linger on as you move to the next one. The writing is hugely observant, and the descriptive nature of the prose will irresistibly pull in readers. This book is a rare gift of humor that will give anyone a good laugh. Memoir of a Nerd: Humorous Essays and Short Stories by Hank Mancini offers the break we need from the stress and the doldrums of today’s hectic lifestyle.
