Falling Into The Manhole (2012), by John Jack Wigley, PhD., is a collection of personal narratives and anecdotes about the author’s life. This memoir is as honest as they come, the author being unafraid to poke fun at himself and to bare all.
His wit and killer sense of humor shine through, as he recounts his obsession for Meryl Streep and Madonna, and his penchant for beauty pageants.
He also writes about love and heartbreak, and what it was like growing up poor, gay, and bi-racial in 1970’s Angeles.
Pithy, poignant, and powerful, this collection of well-written prose, which tugs at one’s heartstrings, will surely make you laugh, cry, and think.
