David Tieck was used to allowing his endless array of humiliating memories crush his spirits, when one day he had a bright idea—to use his most excruciating memories to inspire a challenge or adventure that would finally allow him to become thankful for his past. What could possibly go wrong? Tieck was about to find out the biggest life lesson of all: nothing in life ever goes as planned.
In his memoir, Tieck opens a door into his unequivocally embarrassing life while sharing how he learned to deal with the many memories keeping him from realizing true happiness. As Tieck relives such awkward moments as being dumped halfway through losing his virginity, unsuccessfully attempting to woo a Hollywood actress, and nervously performing stand-up comedy in front of complete strangers, he provides an intimate glimpse into his imperfect, yet heartwarming efforts at creating his own destiny.
The Embarrassing Memory Murderer shares one man’s journey through life as he comes to grips with his past, finds his adventurous spirit, and offers hope, wisdom, and understanding to anyone who is ready to let go and laugh about their own disconcerting moments.
