We all outgrow our early fear of darkened bedrooms and hidden boogeymen, but the absurd childhood anxieties described in The Monster Resembled a Pineapple are not so easily forgotten. Get ready for one man’s droll recollections of window ghouls, lurkers, peeping Toms, hostile toys, obstinate roosters, slice-off-your-nose madmen, grim neighbors, and frightening entities like The Potato Chip Man. This memoir takes a humorous look at irrational fear, but it is definitely not for the fainthearted. Unexpected twists and turns await on this shaky journey of self-discovery. Connections and insights are formed along the way. What does it mean to be afraid in the modern world, and what are the consequences? The answers come step by nervous step. Anyone who has ever felt uneasy in the dark will surely be drawn to this distinct and absorbing account.
