Read full description of the books:
In the very same region of upstate New York where, just a few years earlier, the summer of love was in full, psychedelic bloom, Matt Ziselman experienced his own summer of love. Well, minus the love. And the music. And, the most prevalent drug at the time—at least in Matt’s world—was probably Calamine lotion.
SUNBURNED AND CIRCUMCISED is a funny, poignant coming-of-age story chronicling the eight weeks Matt’s family spent at the Highland Park Bungalow Colony in New York’s Catskills Mountains. Picture The Wonder Years, but with generous amounts of Jewish guilt tossed in and you get the idea.
Going from the mean (okay, they were more mild than mean), stickball playing, Mr. Softee eating, bicycle riding streets of 1972 Brooklyn to the hinterland of upstate New York was a big deal. Matt’s mom told him they were going to “the mountains.” Matt pictured soaring Alpine peaks and Julie Andrews twirling in meadows while hitting high C’s. Turns out, Matt’s mom’s definition of the word “mountain” was, shall we say, wrong! Enter The Catskills.
It was a summer filled with morning reveille, courtesy of a badly scratched 45 record and long, seemingly aimless hikes that did little to counter the term “Wandering Jew.” There was a painful run-in with a highly irate—bordering on anti-Semitic—swarm of hornets; an end-of-summer Color War as intense as any Israeli offensive; and enough swimming to promote gill growth. There were chilly mornings spent searching for salamanders; parched afternoons spent rounding the bases on a field that was more dirt than diamond; and evening skies so full of fireflies and stars that it was hard to tell where one ended and the other began. But, most of all, it was a summer of family, friendship and—whether Matt realized it or not at the time—his first, awkward, hesitant steps towards growing up.

Read information about the authorWhile born in Brooklyn, Matt has always considered himself a Long Islander, where he was raised. Should you ever run-in to him you can easily verify this simply by asking him to say the words, “Long Island.”
Matt’s most recent book, Sunburned and Circumcised is a memoir that recounts the summer of 1972, which Matt and his family spent at the Highland Park Bungalow Colony in New York’s Catskills Mountains. It’s like The Wonder Years, but with significant amounts of Jewish guilt. His first book, Hounded: The Lowdown on Life from Three Dachshunds (2013, Hachette) chronicles Matt’s relationships with his Teutonic trio of dogs – Baxter, Maya and Molly. Matt is currently working on his next book.
Matt’s worked in marketing for a long time, though he couldn’t tell you exactly how that came to pass. He continues to do so because he has become quite fond of such basics as food, shelter and HBO. He’s married and has a 16-year old daughter. Matt hates the heat; he currently resides in Jacksonville, Florida. He fails to find the irony even remotely amusing.
