Description

In this hilarious, confessional memoir, Kevin Keck tries to come to terms with the intense lack of meaning in his life. At twenty-six, Keck felt like he was losing his mind. When anxieties about his "Ultimate Purpose" aren't manifesting themselves in struggles with OCD or depression, they swing him into a mania that drives him from one dysfunctional girlfriend to the next...all of whom resemble his mother in their shared capacities for personalized madness. In search of sanity, he returns to his childhood home in North Carolina, only to be met with serious doses of reality in the form of his congenitally reclusive brother, manic depressive mother, and grandmother suffering from advanced Alzheimer's. His grandfather and dad are there, too, but they never leave the basement where they continually repair a single lawnmower. Will Keck's anxieties about the failure of his Ultimate Purpose to manifest drift away as he looks for life's meaning in the comforting Carolina hills? No way. That wouldn't be funny. Are You There, God? It's Me. Kevin is a madcap journey to faith (in life? in God?) from an insanely talented comedic genius.
