"Jimmy Neurosis" by James Oseland

A pretty cool coming of age story that takes place in San Francisco in the late ‘70s.  The author is apparently a judge on Top Chef Masters, which I did not know when I picked up the book.  The author details the turmoil of growing up as a gay kid in the punk era, dealing with an alcoholic father and a sometimes overbearing mother.  I love punk music and the author really captures the grittiness of the scene. He details his emotional journey of self-discovery with insight and wit. A great read.
