Adventures of a Misfit
Coming of Age in the 50s and 60s
by Lyle Manley
Filled with the hilarious musings of a playful boy growing up in the 1950s, Lyle Manley’s memoir Adventures of a Misfit: Coming of Age in the 50s and 60s is sure to delight anyone from the young to the young at heart. Manley recounts his escapades as a mischievous, graffiti-scribbling boy who moves from the Californian suburbs to the Wild West of Pony, Montana, and eventually to Bozeman, Montana. Whether dodging the gaze of meddling adults with his clan of cousins, facing the trials and tribulations of fitting in at a new school, or etching his ‘prose’ on any surface he can find, young Lyle’s adventures and misadventures are a nostalgic trip back to childhood and the mid-century West.
