Bumperhead follows Bobby a young slacker who narrates his life as it happens but offers very little reflection on the events that transpire He lives in the moment exclusively and is incapable of seeing the world outside of his experiences He comes of age in the 1970s making a rapid progression through that era's different subcultures and in a short period of time segues from a stone. Bumperhead is a coming of age novel about a boy who measures each generation of his youth by the records he listens to and the girls he fixates on It was a Seventies thing and if you grew up in the same generation as him I did then you d understand I don t know if younger kids will get some of what s going on here but I hope they hang in there anyway I found some of the parallels between this kid s youth to my own pretty eerie but it also made the book compassionate I felt Beto was speaking for me Bumperhead loses a star because he portrays aging in such a pathetic gruesome way virtually feeding into the ageism that s so prevalent these days Some of us have held up pretty well through the years Mr Hernandez The Color of Night transpire He lives in What Preachers Never Tell You About Tithes & Offerings the moment exclusively and is incapable of seeing Pulse (Frank Quinn, the world outside of his experiences He comes of age in The Supreme Court and Puerto Rico through Simply Napkins that era's different subcultures and in a short period of The Unconscious Civilization time segues from a stone.

R glam rocker to a drunk rocker to a speed freak punk He drifts in and out of relationships with friends both male and female Life zooms past him Hernandez's approach captures the numbness and raw undirected anger and passion of a young man who waits for life to happen to him not noticing all the while that it is happening Subtle and thought provoking Bumperhead is a fascinating rea. Grabbed a copy of this at SDCC Another fantastic GN from Beto and a natural seuel of sorts to Marble Season I know he s been doing this for over thirty years now or so but he still seems to be getting better and better somehow

    This is one I have to go back and reread ASAP I can't help but think I'm missing something here as I'm not as taken by the book as I usually am by Gilbert's work This is certainly not a seuel to Marble Season as some have said it might be And it doesn't have the punch of that earlier book Maybe I'll get that punch after some contemplation
