What a great read! Growing up binging on John Hughes' movies myself, I loved the premise of this book and thought, why didn't I think of this?
Diamond's childhood is dismal at best, often times his narrative is painful to read as I'm sure it was to recount. He uses Hughes' movies as lenses to filter his life through, as well as an escape/coping mechanism. He is searching for John Hughes, to write an autobiography of sorts, spoiler: but gives up on his search and in doing so, sets himself free and finally sheds his past.
