Fancypants is part memoir, part novel. One Jewish boy’s attempt at coming of age in a time period (1955-1966) when his whole generation is trying to do the same. Buddy Foreman wants answers: Why don’t my parents listen to me when I talk? Why can’t I draw on the walls? What’s the deal with being Jewish? Buddy gives up on being a good boy, a good son, a good Jew––especially after a calamitous Bar Mitzvah. Goes off to college. Discovers others like himself––outsiders. Buddy meets a girl with a crippled leg and a guitar. Candy’s a folksinger. “Do ya wanta go to New York City with me? We’ll be young artists together?” she asks. Buddy drives Candy away, knowing even at the time what a fool he is. Digs his hole deeper by rebounding to a pretty college co-ed, a sorority girl, a schicksa. Buddy and Amy decide to get married. Buddy doesn’t want to go to Vietnam. Keep putting one foot in front of the other,... More > he tells himself. Something’s gotta give. Doesn’t it?< Less
