Summary
"John Hodgman--New York Times bestselling author, semi-famous personality, deranged millionaire, increasingly elderly husband, father, and human of earth--has written a memoir about his cursed travels through two wildernesses: from the woods of his home of Massachusetts, birthplace of rage, to his exile on the coast of Maine, so-called 'Vacationland,' home to the most painful beaches on earth. Vacationland is also about John's wandering in the metaphoric wilderness of his forties, those years when dudes especially must painfully stop pretending to be the children of bright potential they were and settle into the failing bodies of the wiser, weirder dads that they are. Other subjects covered include the horror of freshwater clams, the evolutionary purpose of the mustache, which animals to keep as pets and which to kill with traps and poison, and advice on how to react when the people of coastal Maine try to sacrifice you to their strange god"--
