From the Days of Dirt
J.D. Hutchins, author
From the Days of Dirt is the memoir of Marcus Hastings, a rebellious teenager who grew up in Maine in the 1990's. Marcus believed it was his mission as a young person to have as much fun as possible by causing high-quality mischief. Even when he isn't looking for trouble, which isn't often, trouble seems to find him. Marcus' journal entries trigger a series of stories chronicling his crooked, haphazard journey into adulthood. His cynical and oddly refreshing perspective on what it means to feel alive finds humor in just about everything- whether that be setting his pants on fire, falling in love or being thrown in jail. Many of his recollections are timeless and relatable. We all had that crazy friend or that weird neighbor, and if not, now you do.
