Summary

"A sublimely contemporary study of a universal truth: Growing up is weird to do. Inventive, funny, grotesque, and ribald—a book with something for everyone as long as no one demands that it makes sense." —Kirkus Reviews 

Tacky Goblin is the diary of a young man’s journey through the grotesque underbelly of daily life.  Or maybe it is the exposure of daily life itself as a grotesque underbelly, blistered and searing and glaringly obvious, like a passed-out sunbather. 

Fleeing a talking mold stain in the ceiling of his bedroom in Chicago, he moves to Los Angeles, where he rents an apartment with his sister, Kim. Despite the new city, new friends, and new love interests, something haunts him. The siblings share a surreal and irreverent view of life, and perhaps Kim can help him out of his funk. Or maybe she’ll just lead him to hell. Absurdist, nihilistic, lovable, Tacky Goblin is a very funny look at the dark side of (not) becoming a grown-up.

    From the very first week of Tim Clancy's 25-year career as a high school English teacher, he began to notice and collect funny and strange moments he discovered in his students' writing, such as: "The word 'witch' has become a household word, like 'spatula,'" and "Wherever excitement is, there will always be romance. Trust me." He would occasionally share them with his classes, who enjoyed them as much as he did, and so this book was born. Best in Class collects nearly 200 of the most entertaining of these moments culled from real student writing and complements them with dozens of playful illustrations to create a sympathetically hilarious book for anyone who has muddled their way through the wilderness of a school writing assignment.
