Summary
"In Searching for John Hughes, Jason tells how a Jewish kid from a broken home in a Chicago suburb--sometimes homeless, always restless--found comfort and connection in the likewise broken lives in the suburban Chicago of John Hughes' oeuvre. He moved to New York to become a writer. He started to write a book he had no business writing. In the meantime, he brewed coffee and guarded cupcake cafes. All the while, he watched John Hughes movies religiously."
Summary
For all fans of John Hughes and his hit films such as Sixteen Candles and The Breakfast Club, a hilarious memoir of growing up obsessed with the iconic filmmaker's movies follows the author as he found his path in life, becoming a writer in New York City, all the while watching John Hughes movies religiously
