Most coming-of-age stories are fraught with symbolism, hidden metaphors, and a heaping mound of other literary devices. Not this one. Not mine. You see, I came of age while working at a dusty Texas feed store. A place where To Kill a Mockingbird involved a twelve-year-old and a BB gun. Of Mice and Men was a problem easily solved with rat poison. And David Copperfield, nothing more than a dude that made shit disappear.
The Feedstore Chronicles is a mostly true account of my education amongst murderous ex-wives, a well-hung bulldog, and feed room fornication.

The lewd and crude antics of the worst boss the world has ever known are shocking (you've been warned) and laugh-out-loud hilarious as told by the man who witnessed it all only to emerge worldly and wiser. The writing is smooth, fast-paced with the perfect mix of insightful observations which gives this story lots of heart. If you've ever survived a first job, high school, and the bumbling efforts of a first crush, you will love this book, so buy several as gifts for your friends. Kudos to Mr. Erwin for allowing us to experience the funny and sometimes shocking world that is Pearl's Feed and Seed.
