Puberty Drove the Car: I was just along for the ride takes readers on a nostalgic, coming of age ride about life in Marshall, Texas, during the 50s and 60s. Told through the eyes of a narrator who has now reached his 70s, Puberty Drove the Car relates the sometimes clumsy and often funny march toward adulthood in humorous selections sure to please readers who long to retreat from the frantic pace of today’s lifestyle and seek a refuge the past has to offer through stories full of East Texas laughter. This collection celebrates a down-home good time with people of solid character, reflecting on the syrupy slow 1950s and 1960s when gentility and simplicity were conducive to storing away good memories and enjoying friends.
