With a chirp, a smirk, and a nod, Kent Russell crisscrosses the country, seeking immersive experiences and revelations on society's ragged edge. He pitches a tent among the Insane Clown Posse's fans, known as Juggalos, treks to the end of the continent to find out how a legendary hockey enforcer is preparing for his own death, and explores the Amish obsession with baseball as well as his own obsession with horror, blood, and guts. Between these reports from the world at large, Russell introduces us to his raging and inimitable forebears--above all, his large-living, volatile, hard-as-nails dad.

I Am Sorry to Think I Have Raised a Timid Son is a haunting and howling portrait of America--and American manhood--and the introduction of a ferociously brilliant new voice navigating the junctures between savagery and civilization within himself.
