From the Publisher
In his humorous memoir, Steven Locke chronicles the mishaps, adolescent hazing, general confusion, and breathtaking stupidity exhibited by himself and experienced by those unfortunate enough to be in close proximity. He presents a whimsical journey through his experiences as he matured from an adolescent focused on creating a revolt in the high school cafeteria into a young man ready to tackle a warped world.
Recalling a lifetime of adventures and misadventures, Locke shares vignettes describing run-ins with high school principals, military policemen, irate hotel managers, firemen, university police officers, and Columbus cops. From rural Centertown, Ohio, to Fort Jackson, South Carolina, and from Ohio State University to the classrooms of Ohio’s public schools, Locke takes a humorous romp through nearly fifty years of existence as he somehow manages to learn valuable life lessons while on fugitive manhunts, in emergency rooms, and atop snowy Alpine slopes.
A Peck of Trouble offers an entertaining collection of stories that detail one man’s coming-of-age journey on the Big Blue Orb as he evolves from youthful barbarian to enlightened adult.
