Randy Mixter

A book review by Jack Flynn

This is a great book for anyone who wants to visit or better yet revisit a typical boy's coming of age in the 50's and 60's through the experiences and memories of its talented author as he grows up in suburban Baltimore. Its appeal is universal as you travel back to the outdoors world of Randy and his brother and friends. You slip away from parents and teachers into the magical world of scary woodland nights, warm summer days, chasing girls, parking, discovering rock and roll. The author's ability to recall events and people in wonderfully exquisite detail has the effect of bringing your own pre-teen and teen years back to life. There is a magical wonder to that all too short time in your life, and living it in the post war days in America was a gift. It was all low-tech by today's standards but I think a lot more fun. This is a wonderful book and I enjoyed every page.
