Remembering the GuyEvery gang of teenage male friends has someone who is the Guy He has all the best ideas can always get a car is wise in the ways of girls and knows bars where they don t card He always has a pal or knows someone who can get you in to wherever it is you want to go When he smiles at a diner waitress at 200 am she smiles back All of the Moms think he s charming and responsible and you can get permission to go along on any road trip if the Guy s going to be thereThis book is a specific examplememory piece of one such guy Jamie written by his best friend It starts in New Trier High School and since that s the same school where Ferris Bueller and all of those John Hughes Pretty in Pink people went to school you know the book s bona fides are legit It s actually sort of a fictionalized nonfiction memoir but that s OK because a little embroidering in the service of a larger goal is fineI thought this might end up being a sort of shaggy dog story that would run out of steam But it is much than that Because Cohen takes a modest and low key approach it s a little deceptive and it takes you a while to realize and appreciate just how well written this book is It s not just manic tales and socko adventures There s not even much of that It s lots of little bits sometimes a page long maybe a paragraph even just a line but they add up to something that feels true and authentic about the daily job of just growing up It s a bit wistful but has a bit of an air of a survivor s pride Cohen understands now some of the things he remembers from then and that understanding informs his storyAnd the book really works on two levels On one hand you enjoy the skill with which Cohen tells his story and you appreciate the people and events and sensations he recounts On a different level though his writing reminds you of people and events and sensations from your own life if you re the right age and these memories if you are lucky are warm and tinged with the generous humanity Cohen brings to his writingSure once we get to college it s all about Cohen and his time at the New Yorker is the same Interesting but not universally interesting It kept my interest because Cohen is such an engaging writer but mostly because I knew we were going to have to circle back to Jamie by the end And that ending which isn t socko but which nicely wraps up the book was worth the waitSo this is a memorable and satisfying book and a real writer s book with uality touches too numerous to mention A nice mellow find
