Lake Effect is about growing up on the Great Lakes, emerging from the shadow of a father, falling under the spell of an unforgettable friendship, and the pain of looking back on that friendship with adult eyes. What happens to the self of childhood? Can a person vanish so cleanly into adult life? In a memoir that stretches from the shores of Lake Michigan to the streets of the French Quarter to the hallowed halls of the old New Yorker, Rich Cohen captures the humble dreams - of kissing girls, getting drunk for the first time, driving to a jazz club in "the city" in a borrowed car, seeing the Cubs finally win from the cheap seats at Wrigley Field on a summer day - that fueled an epic bond between two young men.
