Man of the Year Sensational 70s Soundtrack

Here are some of the songs I listened to when I lived through my MAN OF THE YEAR year, and when I wrote the book.

"The kind of book readers fall in love with.” — Booklist, Starred Review


"Hilarious & Poignant"

"The kind of book readers fall in love with.” — Booklist, Starred Review

An Amazon best memoir of 2017

“A preposterous true tale about one little man's journey into adulthood"
-- Jill Soloway.

“This book is about a lot of things: fatherhood, religion, friendship, nostalgia and, of course, male nipples. It’s got something for everyone. And best of all, it’s told in Lou’s voice: funny, touching and compelling. Doesn’t even need a centerfold.” 
―A.J. Jacobs, New York Times bestselling author of The Year of Living Biblically

"Hilarious, fun and surprisingly touching. You'll instantly fall in love with the Cove family and the surrounding cast of eccentric characters, right down to their smelly rabbit. Man of the Year has my vote." 
―Dan Marshall, author of Home is Burning

“A classic coming-of-age story, beautifully written, consistently agreeable, and good-humored… the kind of book readers fall in love with.”
―Booklist, Starred Review

“Cove has a light touch and an eye for regional and temporal detail… Most who either recall or are curious about this free-loving period of history will find themselves satisfied by Cove's re-creation of his journey out of boyhood.”
―Kirkus Reviews

"An excellent document of a family existing during a groovy time in America’s history, during the post-hippie-pre-AIDS era, when the Vietnam war over and the country was finding itself. "
--BoingBoing
