Wanting to pass along memories and experiences that shaped his life to his young daughter, Carl Lennertz has written a book of essays. Cursed by a Happy Childhood is Lennertzís recollections of his life and comparisons of things that happened to him with the way things occur now.

Filled with humor and nostalgia, Cursed by a Happy Childhood will appeal to readers who enjoy reminiscing about the past. Whether it be television, music, doing nothing (yesterday versus today), sports, books, fashion, or cars, readers will laugh with recognition of themselves in these pages. I found many things to relate toóboth with the way I was raised and with the way I am raising my own children. Thereís a universal camaraderie that exists, and everyone can join in through the pages of this book.

Cursed by a Happy Childhood is a quiet, unassuming book that will have delightful impact on your life. Itís a fun book to read and savor, and would make an excellent gift for parents and adult children alike.
