A Few Seconds of Radiant Filmstrip: A Memoir of Seventh Grade

Kevin Brockmeier


At age twelve, Kevin Brockmeier is able to develop into a unique individual: no longer the boy he has constantly been—the person who cries too simply and laughs too simply, who lives in an otherland of gleaming daydreams and imaginary catastrophes—but another individual altogether.
 
Over the process one institution year—seventh grade—he sets out looking for himself. alongside the way in which, he occurs into his first kiss at a church get together, struggles to appreciate why his previous acquaintances tease him on the lunch desk, turns into the controversy of the total tuition due to his Halloween dress, and booby-traps his lunch to discourage a thief.
 
With a similar deep feeling and oddly dreamlike precision which are the hallmarks of his fiction, the acclaimed novelist now explores the dream of his personal previous and recovers the individual he used to be.
