9780316067171: The Real Animal House: The Awesomely Depraved Saga of the Fraternity That Inspired the Movie

"Loud, raucous, infantile, racy, and very funny...The book is full of likable eccentrics, sexual shenanigans, and--if you know where to look for them--valuable life lessons."--Booklist

Animal House, the movie, didn't tell the half of it.

Writing with a freshness and joy that make Dartmouth 1960 feel like a beer-soaked rock-and-roll heaven on earth, Chris Miller tells the real story of the Alpha Delta Phi fraternity as no one else could. Seal, Doberman, Otter, the legendary Moses (he of the burning bush) - these titans and dozens of others come alive again, terrorizing the administration, taunting cops, surviving their own lunacy, and challenging the squareness of a stifling time. The Real Animal House is the perfect antidote for a conventional age much like today.

"A breezy, chuckle-worthy read, and a must for the Animal House fan." -Courier-Post

"Action-packed. . . . A boozy holler of a book, with a great soundtrack." -Kirkus Reviews

"A seriously funny read. . . . The joy and exuberance that Pinto and his pals demonstrate holds a lesson for every generation that needs to learn not to blindly follow the expectations of parents and guidance counselors, but to seek out those blissful bands of merry misfits that appear from time to time." -Review

About the Author:

Chris Miller is a screenwriter who was the story-writer in residence at National Lampoon for 25 years. A former ad man, he now lives in Venice, California.

From AudioFile:

Alpha Delta Phi of Dartmouth College is the fraternity on which the movie ANIMAL HOUSE was based. Miller's account of the organization's exploits during his sophomore year in the early 1960s delivers even more debauchery and depravity than its movie namesake. Listeners won't know whether to laugh or cry (with disgust). Initially, Todd McLaren's dry voice seems a poor match, but by the end of the first hour listeners fall into step with his cadence and style. McLaren's matter-of-fact tone makes the bizarre stories that much zanier. He even executes the musical cues within the text impressively. However, his vocal characterizations often sound more like impersonations than actual people. L.E. © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine

Descrizione libro Little, Brown Company, United States, 2007. Paperback. Condizione libro: New. Reprint. Language: English . This book usually ship within 10-15 business days and we will endeavor to dispatch orders quicker than this where possible. Brand New Book. Animal House, the film adaptation of stories Chris Miller published in National Lampoon about his experiences at a Dartmouth (USA) fraternity, is among the most beloved and successful comedies of all time. Its portrayal of college party life is still imitated on campuses across America - toga party, anyone? Now, nearly thirty years after the movie hit cinemas, there are no taboos left and Chris Miller can finally answer the fans who all want to know one thing: was it really like that? The answer: Yes - but much, much more out of control! Here, for the first time, are the real stories of Alpha Delta Phi. Like the one about the frat brother who entertained the house by lighting his hair on fire - not the hair on his head, however. Or about the pledge who trick-or-treated around campus in a very revealing jack-o-lantern costume. Or about initiation night when a frozen hot dog became very painful for two rushes.
