Summary
THE COMPLETE HISTORY OF CHEEKTOWAGA (AS I REMEMBER IT) "When did the memory of your life become more powerful than the life you choose to lead?" Matt Christopher and his friends grew up in the 1970's and early 80's in Cheektowaga, New York, a suburb of Buffalo. Along the way, they discovered music, girls, alcohol, and all of the other trappings of middle-class suburbia. They discovered friendship, and its resultant independence and struggles. And then it happens. And Matt Christopher is not ready. Through dreams, town history, pictures, and narrative, Michael Lauer takes a coming of age story and turns it into a coming to terms story. He illustrates how the "where" in your life is as important as the "who" in shaping us. How blessed we are to have friends that see us through a lifetime of good and bad. An unconventional, private journey that took more than 10 years to write, this is a book of discovery and reflection. Hopeful in its grief, haunting in its honesty. Beautiful, funny, sad, philosophical, and silly, Cheektowaga walks the line between them all. Be ready to walk away pondering your own "Where am I?"
