[Read by Wil Wheaton]
In the process of uncovering his true geeky self, Wil Wheaton speaks to the inner geek in all of us. -- Wil Wheaton -- blogger, geek, and Star Trek: The Next Generation's Wesley Crusher--gives us five short-but-true tales of life in the so-called Space Age in Dancing Barefoot. With a true geek's unflinching honesty, Wil examines life, love, the web, and the absurdities of Hollywood in these compelling autobiographical narratives. Based on pieces first published in Wil's hugely popular blog, wilwheaton.net, the stories in Dancing Barefoot chronicle a teen television star's journey to maturity and self-acceptance. Far from the usual celebrity tell-all, Dancing Barefoot is a vivid account of one man's version of that universal story, the search for self. If you've ever fallen in love, wondered what goes on behind the scenes at a Star Trek convention, or thought hard about the meaning of life, you'll find a kindred soul in the pages of Dancing Barefoot. In the process of uncovering his true geeky self, Wil Wheaton speaks to the inner geek in all of us.
The stories include:
''Houses in Motion'' -- Memories fill the emptiness left within a childhood home, and saying goodbye brings them to life.
''Ready or Not Here I Come'' -- A game of hide-and-seek with the kids works as a time machine, taking Wil on a tour of the hiding and seeking of years gone by.
''Inferno'' -- Two fifteen-year-olds pass in the night, leaving behind pleasant memories and a perfumed Car Wars Deluxe Edition Box Set.
''We Close Our Eyes'' -- A few beautiful moments spent dancing in the rain.
''The Saga of SpongeBob VegasPants'' -- A story of love, hate, laughter, and the acceptance of all things Trek.
Dall'autore: There are five stories, spanning 30 years, in these pages. They originally appeared on my website, WIL WHEATON DOT NET.
I liked them so much, I intended to include them in Just A Geek, but they didn't fit. So they get to live here, with some wonderful illustrations to keep them company.
Some of them are funny, one is very sad, one is pretty damn sentimental, but they are all true. I wrote them shortly after my 30th birthday, as I looked to my past in an attempt to understand my present, and not fear my future.
I gave birth to this book when I wrote it. By reading it, you give it life. Take good care of my babies.
