I Was A Teenage Mennonite: and other stories my father doesn’t want me to tell
Jim Martens’ humorous look back at growing up in the sixties in an urban Canadian/Mennonite family based on Carol Burnett’s premise that “Comedy is tragedy plus time!”
Excerpt: Carol Burnett was right. Comedy is tragedy plus time. I know this because I was a teenage Mennonite. Not just anytime, but in the sixties. Now forty years later it’s time to pull the brown paper bag off of the hidden world of the Mennonites. Can adolescents survive and thrive with oppressive restrictions? Well, what if they’re Mennonites? How do they fare compared to the youth of their day? Better yet, how did I fare during these days? This is my story.
