Alan Olifson has a knack for taking relatable experiences – parenting mistakes, botched home improvements, the hassles of having to act like a grownup – and making them way funnier than I remember them being when they happened to me.
– Jonathan Green, writer/producer of Superstore and The Office
How to use a hacksaw? Car maintenance advice? How to avoid getting hustled by a twelve-year-old psychic? You will not likely find answers to those questions in Alan Olifson’s hilarious, smart, real collection of essays. But you’ll laugh, like a lot, as you read about Olifson’s journey to figure it all out.
– Rachna Fruchbom, writer of Fresh Off the Boat and Parks and Recreation
Alan Olifson isn’t just funny. As he proves in Manchild, he’s whip smart and deeply honest. And the guy has a gigantic heart. All that is evident in this lovely collection as it was from the moment I first read his work: Over a decade ago Alan walked into a class I was teaching at UCLA Extension. Actually, he hobbled in on crutches. Naturally we all wanted to know: Skiing accident? Football? Maybe luge? Then he read us the story and had us all doubled over with laughter.
– Amy Friedman, author of Desperado’s Wife: A Memoir
Olifson’s witty and self-deprecating essays perfectly capture the frantic race to grow up just a little bit before your kids do.
