All Screwed Up : A Memoir
Murder attempts... missing umbilical cords... haunted quarries... fat camps... These darkly comic stories fill the pages of All Screwed Up. Young, gay, and poor, Steve Fellner attempts to shed his trailer park past and seize a better life for himself. But coming from the sticks offers a certain kind of freedom: no one expects anything from you, so you can be as wild and ridiculous as you want. Fellner s humorous and touching memoir centers on his odd relationship with his mother, a woman who was once a championship trampolinist and is now a champion of the unpredictable. Who could blame her for demanding her son attend her high school reunion? Or suggesting the family team up to do some shoplifting? Told with shocking humor and startling honestly, All Screwed Up manages to reinvent the comingout story and describes one of the strangest mother-son relationships in recent memory.
