What happens when the phone rings in the dead of night and brings every memory flooding back from your awkward youth? That's the conundrum our very average narrator faces - just like you might someday.

Twenty years ago, before his wife and child, our narrator was nobody - a lot like all of us. He dreamed of love and glory and getting to second base. Now, as he wonders who is on the other line of that late-night call, he recalls the loves lost and the glories just out of reach. With the help of his rat pack of dim-witted friends, he experiences all that middle and high school has to offer (or maybe slightly less).

Author G.C. Cook leans on his experience as a stand-up comedian to craft a funny and poignant chronicle of coming of age experiences, including love, divorced parents, addiction and the creation of the definitive rule book for "Seven Minutes in Heaven." With a style reminiscent of Dave Barry, David Sedaris and Bill Bryson, G.C. Cook takes you on a ride through adolescence that will take you right back to the roller coaster of emotions of your youth - the good, the bad and definitely the juvenile.

About the Author

Author G.C. Cook is a former stand-up comedian and actor, who has now turned his attention to the written word. Never one to bother with political correctness, Cook loves using his sarcastic wit to turn the spotlight on any issue to uncover all sides. "Tales from a Nobody" is his first novel, and will have you laughing at the shared memories of youth, while touching you with his totally relatable characters. His mother says he never calls, but don't let that sway your opinion of him - he's just a really busy guy. And handsome. And tall too. And a really likeable guy.
