Today Jim Maher, author of Hemingway Man, is here to share a little bit about his teenage years in the form of a garage sale! Ever curious what things your favorite author might have amassed as a teen? Well here's your chance to find out what Jim Maher would sell!
A garage sale of my teenage years, hmmm? That was about twelve thousand years ago (or 12,
I’m 31 now.) What did I have in high school?
-Nirvana, Green Day, Bob Marley and Offspring CDs
-MAD magazine (not the most mature person in the world)
-the Wheel of Time series
-Leonard Cohen (music, not actual Leonard Cohen)
-Bob Marley posters
-a catalogue for the University of the West Indies (brief flirtation with Rastafarianism)
-Stone Cold Steve Austin figurine (it was a doll, I can admit it)
-scraps of pathetic poetry about the girls I had crushes on over the years (which will never see
the light of day)
-three failed driver’s tests (one in which I very nearly killed the examiner. Sorry, Bob.)
That would about cover my teenage garage sale. You can have the lot for five bucks.
Thank you Jim for sharing!
(and darn I thought I'd be able to buy Leonard Cohen for 5 bucks *sighs*)
Sixteen-year-old Will has just lost his father. With no one else to guide him towards manhood, he follows the teachings of Ernest Hemingway:
1. Plant a tree.
2. Write a book.
3. Fight a bull
4. Have a son.
Good luck with that.
