Overview

Open the pages of But Seriously and you'll see that it is anything but serious. David Jenneson's tight, funny first person wit will keep you reading, smiling and nodding in agreement. His broad brush covers everything from beating up Spammers to destroying Andy Warhol sculptures in the name of art, from the Beatles to being chased by shotgun wielding millionaires. Even his more serious pieces like Freedom 54 (about the pitfalls of being fired at age 50) and My Little Cancer Doll (about providing home care to a companion with serious breast cancer) still raise a smile here and there. And yes, there is even a first person experience about finding faith on a frozen stretch of highway in 1967. It gives a broad look at a generation coming to age and remarkably, always finds humor even in the darkest of circumstances. A great gift for someone who truly loves the written word.

Editorial Reviews

Robert H. Goss
If I were asked which story I liked most, I would have to say all of them. I would be hard pressed to single out one story as they all were great. This is one book that everyone should read. You won't be disappointed.
Brother Jake Edwards
Dave Jenneson is a very funny writer and this book is loaded with laughs. Get it.
Nora Reviewer
What does hitch-hiking across Canada in the dead of winter, borrowing Dad's car without permission and getting caught, getting paid in onions, and on-the-job training as a cancer caregiver all have in common? They're just a few of speed bumps along David Jenneson's roller-coaster ride down memory lane a trip filled with more laugh-out-loud moments than any book I've read for a very long time. But Seriously is more than just laughs, though.
