A wry, clear-eyed, and laugh-out-loud look at the transition to adulthood Three months before getting married at age thirty-four, Josh Wolk decides to treat himself to a farewell to childhood extravaganza: one last summer working at the beloved Maine boys camp where he spent most of the eighties.

And there he finds out that theres no better way to see how much youve changed than to revisit a place that hasnt changed at all.In these eight hilarious, uncomfortable, enlightening weeks, Josh readjusts to life teaching swimming and balancing on a thin metal cot in a cabin of shouting, wrestling, wet-willie-dispensing fourteen-year-olds who, contrary to the warnings of doomsaying sociologists, he finds indistinguishable from the rowdy fourteen-year-olds of his day in any way other than their haircuts.

With his old camp friends gone, he finds himself working alongside guys who used to be his campers. Moments of feeling cripplingly old are offset by the corrosive insecurities of his youth when hes paired in the cabin with Mitch, the forty-two-year-old jack-of-all- extreme-sports whose machismo intimidated Josh so much fifteen years earlier, and whom their current campers idolize.

And throughout all this disorienting regression, Joshs telephone conversations with his fiance, Christine, grow increasingly intense as their often comical discussions over the wedding become a flimsy cover for her worries that hes not ready to relinquish his death-grip on the comforts of the past.A hilarious and insightful look at the tenacious power of nostalgia, the glory of childhood, and the nervous excitement of taking a leap to the next unknown stage in life, Cabin Pressure will appeal to anyone whos ever been young, wishes he was young again, but knows deep down it probably isnt a good idea.
