Forty five years of stumbling, bumbling, and striving to make the American dream a reality. Beginning in the mid-1970s and hitting the brakes days before the 2020 elections, this compelling memoir shows us where we’ve been and where we might be headed via one man’s memories and experiences.
While it may read like a novel, every word is true: good, bad, and ugly.
Talk is cheap and some actions have expensive consequences. What’s worse? Regretting some of the things you’ve done, or wondering what might have been? Do you have the guts to chase your crazy dreams and live up to your highest ideals, or are your convictions as shallow as the ink on your T-shirt?
Filled with interesting characters, uncommon adventures, and gallows humor throughout, this is the tale of an individual who played it to the hilt until he was bored. Bored on the wild side.

Jason Laureno is an irrepressible smartass and a terminal fuckup, but he means well. He lives in one of the worst neighborhoods in Gresham, Oregon and he absolutely loves it. He bites his fingernails, picks his nose, and farts a lot. He is enjoying a few beers while he writes this, as he feels pretentious writing about himself in the third person. This is his first book. Possibly his last. Don’t be greedy.
