    About The Book

    What happens when a grown man returns to the site of his fondest childhood memories? A wry, clear-eyed, and laugh-out-loud look at the transition to adulthood

    Three months before getting married at age thirty-four, Josh Wolk decides to treat himself to a “farewell to childhood” extravaganza: one last summer working at the beloved Maine boys’ camp where he spent most of the eighties. And there he finds out that there’s no better way to see how much you’ve changed than to revisit a place that hasn’t changed at all.

    In these eight hilarious, uncomfortable, enlightening weeks, Josh readjusts to life teaching swimming and balancing on a thin metal cot in a cabin of shouting, wrestling, wet-willie-dispensing fourteen-year-olds who, contrary to the warnings of doomsaying sociologists, he finds indistinguishable from the rowdy fourteen-year-olds of his day in any way other than their haircuts. With his old camp friends gone, he finds himself working alongside guys who used to be his campers. Moments of feeling cripplingly old are offset by the corrosive insecurities of his youth when he’s paired in the cabin with Mitch, the forty-two-year-old jack-of-all- extreme-sports whose machismo intimidated Josh so much fifteen years earlier, and whom their current campers idolize. And throughout all this disorienting regression, Josh’s telephone conversations with his fianc�e, Christine, grow increasingly intense as their often comical discussions over the wedding become a flimsy cover for her worries that he’s not ready to relinquish his death-grip on the comforts of the past./PPA hilarious and insightful look at the tenacious power of nostalgia, the glory of childhood, and thenervous excitement of taking a leap to the next unknown stage in life, iCabin Pressure/i will appeal to anyone who’s ever been young, wishes he was young again, but knows deep down it probably isn’t a good idea./PPbJosh Wolk/b is a senior writer at iEntertainment Weekly/i. His work has appeared in the iNew York Times/i, the iBoston Globe, Time Out New York, Sports Illustrated/i, and iGolf/i. He lives in Brooklyn with his wife and their daughter./P
