Overview

Up to No Good is a collection of hysterical stories from grown men about the havoc they wreaked when they were boys. Nothing is sacred in this collection that makes Eddie Haskall look like a goody two shoes(terrified nuns, electric fences, science classes gone bad—the list goes on and on. The storytellers are purportedly "perfectly decent grown men," although judging from these tales that's hard to believe. It's impossible to flip through the pages without remembering some of your own pranks-and punishments-and cringing at the thought of the poor adults who had to grin and bear it. For all the former bad boys who've been ensconced in corner offices and carpool caravans across America, here's a great way to jog a heretofore selective memory and recall a time when gross was good, girls were a nuisance, and mischief was there for the making. Heather Gilson specializes in photographing children's fashion and portraits for magazines and private clients.
