Accidental Brownie comprises the tender, mostly factual, often very funny recollections of "an incredibly naive and honest kid" growing up in middle-class south Minneapolis during the fifties and sixties. His tales are populated by a memorable cast of exasperated parents, gimlet-eyed teachers, pretty but tragically inaccessible girls, and assorted mischief-makers, bullies, and oddballs, including the figurative "three-legged puppy" - literally a sweet, dull boy named Kermit--our hero feels compelled to protect. Relentlessly curious, obsessive, and well-intentioned, young Paul misses nothing, neither the quotidian details of neighborhood life nor the larger mysteries of his rapidly expanding universe, while fitfully discovering, in his rueful words, "that not everything my mother told me was true." - William Swanson, author of Stolen from the Garden: The Kidnapping of Virginia Piper
