Everything Is Wrong with Me

A Memoir of an American Childhood Gone, Well, Wrong

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.

Description

“People who grow up like this tend to become agoraphobics, serial killers, or really funny writers. Mulgrew, I think – hope? – is the last of these three things. His stories of childhood made me laugh out loud.” — Rob McElhenney, star, creator, and producer of It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia “The somewhat alarming, always interesting world inside Jason’s brain has now been strewn across the pages of a book. Godspeed, reader.” — Steve Hely, author of How I Became a Famous Novelist Jason Mulgrew’s wildly popular blog “Everything Is Wrong With Me: 30, Bipolar and Hungry,” gives rise to a memoir of startling insight, comedy, and irreversible, unconscionable stupidity.

From Publishers Weekly

Jan 11, 2010 – Blogger Mulgrew, an Irish Catholic son of working-class South Philly, grew up in the early 1980s. In his irreverent, self-deprecating, but frequently funny first book, based on his blog, he revisits his childhood and adolescence. Following in the footsteps of his storytelling father, who hung out with other guys in dive bars, the author encountered (and makes somewhat cursory use of) characters like the local kleptomaniac, a neighbor s teenaged uncle, who expanded on lessons in hustling previously laid down by a numbers-running grandfather, and the friend who launched further escapades in both entrepreneurship and juvenile pyromania. Mulgrew doesn t dwell sentimentally on his parents rocky relationship, and in comparison to the seemingly endless run of adventures in ersatz jock-and-studhood, there s relatively little about his mother or his siblings. Instead, the book takes readers deep into a traditional, working-class social world where sports, Jackass-type pranks, and loyalty reigned. True to the lad-lit form and content, the narrative is often downright crude, with a Maxim-article tone.

Quality Comical take on growing up in Philly

Jason has a wonderfully sarcastic slant on growing up in a "different" family in south Philly. A great collection of life's funny little tails

Hilariously entertaining

I would keep reading just to see what goofy situation he got into next. It is very different from any memoir I've ever read. Most are so serious and meaning filled. This felt just funny enough to be real and it's fun to find a person who can look back and not take things too seriously. After all, life is funny if you let it be. I loved it and who can't relate to the title?

Glad it was only a buck

I'm giving this story/memoir 2 stars because at one point in time, I was actually interested in what this author had to say. 382 pages of why he is a loser is 380 pages too long, especially since a good portion of those pages was about his father...apples don't fall too far from trees, I guess. Chip off the old block, they say! Don't know how it ends, didn't finish it, didn't really care. Delete.
