It's Kind Of A Funny Story
Like many ambitious New York City teenagers, Craig Gilner sees entry into Manhattan x2019;s Executive Pre-Professional High School as the ticket to his future. Determined to succeed at life x2014;which means getting into the right high school to get into the right college to get the right job x2014;Craig studies night and day to ace the entrance exam, and does. That x2019;s when things start to get crazy.
At his new school, Craig realizes that he isn't brilliant compared to the other kids; he x2019;s just average, and maybe not even that. He soon sees his once-perfect future crumbling away. The stress becomes unbearable and Craig stops eating and sleeping x2014;until, one night, he nearly kills himself.
Craig x2019;s suicidal episode gets him checked into a mental hospital, where his new neighbors include a transsexual sex addict, a girl who has scarred her own face with scissors, and the self-elected President Armelio. There, isolated from the crushing pressures of school and friends, Craig is finally able to confront the sources of his anxiety.
Ned Vizzini, who himself spent time in a psychiatric hospital, has created a remarkably moving tale about the sometimes unexpected road to happiness. For a novel about depression, it x2019;s definitely a funny story.
When You Put On A Red Shirt
Keith Dewhurst first fell in love with Manchester United as a schoolboy in 1946. Ten years later he was the travelling reporter with the team, enjoying unprecedented access to players and management.
He was there as great teams took shape under the legendary manager Matt Busby, and as a witness to the aftermath of the club's great tragedy - the Munich air disaster. He was there too on the road with Jimmy Murphy, United's assistant manager and coaching genius, as the team played on during Busby's long recovery. In Busby, Dewhurst witnessed both the genius of football legend and the darker side of a master manipulator.
When You Put on a Red Shirt is Dewhurst's homage to the players he knew then - both the lost and the saved - and to his youth, evoking with vivid brilliance a lost era, and powerfully recapturing a world which has become myth.
