about

"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<_st13a_city _w3a_st="on"><_st13a_place _w3a_st="on">Dartmouth1960 feel like a beer-soaked rock-and-roll heaven on earth,<_st13a_personname _w3a_st="on">Chris Millertells 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 Houseis 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
