Bryant Delafosse’s Coming-of-Age Book “Even the Losers” Will Be Displayed at the 2023 Los Angeles Times Festival of Books

Bryant Delafosse perfectly captures the summer of 1980 from a teenage boy’s perspective: The movies, the music, the first ’real’ job, hanging out with friends, the sense of freedom that comes with a driver’s license and a car, and, above all, attempting (and often failing) to unravel the mysteries of the fairer sex.

Self-publishing and book marketing company ReadersMagnet will exhibit the quirky coming-of-age, romantic comedy “Even the Losers: A Saga from the Summer of 1980” by Bryant Delafosse at the Los Angeles Times Festival of Books 2023. The book festival will take place on April 22-23, 2023, at the University of Southern California, Los Angeles, USA.

“Even the Losers” tells the story of Neil Thibodeaux, a seventeen-year-old boy who is uprooted from his familiar surroundings to move to Philton, which he describes as the “butt-crack” of Texas. Neil’s father has secured him a job, but he has other ideas; he gets a job at the local movie theater, where he meets CC, an older and more mature young woman, who captures his heart.

As the summer progresses, Neil faces challenges at home as his family struggles to cope with the loss of his mother. Meanwhile, the theater experiences a surge in business thanks to the release of the highly anticipated Star Wars movie, The Empire Strikes Back. Neil struggles to be promoted to projectionist and takes on new responsibilities while learning valuable life lessons about love, friendship, and chasing his dreams.

Bryant Delafosse’s own memories of working as a movie projectionist add realism to the story, written with vivid descriptions that transport readers back to the summer of 1980. Fans of coming-of-age stories and romantic comedies will find this book a delightful read.

Readers are sure to enjoy this latest work, which showcases the author’s talent for crafting engaging and thought-provoking stories that stay with readers long after the last page is turned.
