Jean Shepherd, an American storyteller and radio/TV personality from 1945 through the 1990s, wrote this book based on his growing up years in Hammond, Indiana during the Great Depression. He's returned to town, after many years in New York City, for a short-term assignment. When he steps into Flick's Tavern, he runs into his old pal who's now running the bar owned by his father. The chapters alternate between the present and childhood reminiscences. Written in a style that has echoes of Mark Twain, Garrison Keillor, and David Sedaris, the reader is transported to a childhood that my mom and dad experienced. The book was later made into two movies, A Christmas Story (which has become wildly popular) and A Summer Story (which was made later with different actors). After seeing both movies, most of the author's childhood exploits are now on film.
