La description:

Kent Russell is on a mission. With a chirp, smirk, and a nod he crisscrosses the country, hungering for immersive experience and revelation on society’s ragged edge. He pitches a tent among the freaks and fans known as Juggalos. He treks to the end of the continent in search of a legendary hockey enforcer, to see how the fighter is preparing to die. He spends a long weekend getting drunk with a self-immunizer who’s not afraid of snakes. He explores the Amish obsession with baseball, and his own obsession with horror, blood, and guts. And between these reports from the world at large, Russell introduces us to his own raging and inimitable forebears—above all, his large-living, volatile, hard-as-nails dad. I Am Sorry to Think I Have Raised a Timid Son is a haunting and howling portrait of America—and American malehood—and the introduction of a ferociously brilliant new voice navigating the junctures between savagery and civilization within.
