1970s Version of New Coming of Age Story Released as eBook (Kindle & Kobo)

"In true Groundhog Day fashion, when it is our time, we all emerge from the den of childhood into the adult world and have the same sort of experience, each generation feeling different variations on a familiar emotional theme, shaped by the prevailing ethos of the age into which we become emergent adults," says Clark.
Based loosely on what Clark himself describes as sometimes faulty recollections of real events, BRICKS is a memoir of sorts that introduces young readers of today to a place where their forebears lived when THEY were that age: where children were turning into adults, hormones raged, school was a drag, and where a double standard applied as between girls and boys - especially when it comes to sex.
As for the title, according to its website, it derives from a true-to-life incident when a young man discovers why his mom called his first real girlfriend a "brick shithouse".
