Some advance praises for DFMIL:

“Richard Rushfield was a dick in college just ask him. DFMIL is a hilarious recanting of a unique, and often absurd higher education experience. Rushfield is a completely lovable ne’er-do-well bumbling through a do it yourself education. Required reading for anyone who went to college, lives near a college or owns a hacky sack.”
– Greg Behrendt, comic/Author -“He’s Just Not That Into You”

“Richard Rushfield has provided a worm’s eye view of one of America’s kookiest education experiments: Hampshire College. It was here that the idealism of the Sixties curdled into the nihilism of the Eighties — and ‘Don’t Follow me, I’m Lost’ isn’t merely about a troubled liberal arts school, but an entire generation’s nervous breakdown. It is by turns rueful, angry, touching and, above all, very, very funny.”
– Toby Young “How To Lose Friends and Alienate People”

“Richard Rushfield has written a smart, funny, fish-out-of-water love letter to the 80’s. Vivid settings plus memorable characters and wry humor equals one totally awesome memoir.”
– Moon Zappa

“Had Dorothy Parker been a teenage boy in the Eighties, she’d have been Richard Rushfield, whose bon mots fly from a roundtable set in dank stairwell parties around kegs of flat beer.” –Stacey Grenrock Woods, author of I, California

“Richard Rushfield recalls his college years as a loveable miscreant living among the P.C. police with unflinching humor and a generous appreciation for a group of wayward youths struggling to forge meaningful identities (and stay in college as long as possible). He finds humor in nearly all the players – from the hippie advisors who suggest skipping classes in order to encourage independent thinking to the over-privileged students who rise from their cocaine and cockroach-filled dwellings to perform purposely upsetting concerts. I can’t imagine a more unique or uproarious depiction of the post-Reagan, pre-grunge era.” – Anna David, author of Bought, host of “Attack of the Show!”
