Abstract:

Star CBC-radio host Rich Terfry presents the true story of his alter ego, musician Buck 65, in this rollicking and wonderfully written memoir of growing up poor, talented, baseball-obsessed, music-mad and girl-smitten on the East Coast. Born in a small town to a mother who begins yelling at him the moment he is born and a father who disappears into drink, Buck imbibes fear and insecurity like other kids guzzle milk. Buck almost disappears into the "evil in the woods" that lurks just beyond the town's border ... until he is saved by three gifts: baseball, romantic love and music.
