    Closing Time

    A Searing Memoir

    Author, critic, humorist, and essayist, Joe Queenan uses humor to address in stark, sometimes painful detail the story of his life.

    Queenan's childhood was marked by poverty, instability, and abuse. Talking with Prime Time Radio host Mike Cuthbert, Queenan draws on his legendary wit in what AARP book critic Allan Fallow calls: "the definitive remembrance of the dark side of boomer childhood.   Forget about the mass of men leading 'lives of quiet desperation.' Closing Time chronicles the depredations of one man—the lifelong drunk who was Queenan's father—leading a life of raucous despair."
