Sample My Book—Leaving Mundania




 I am intrigued
 I know people who larp
 I so larp

Think of larping as well-organized make believe for grownups. Explore this emerging subculture, feel for its participants and laugh out loud.

In the book, I profile a diverse range of larpers, from a dad who ran his kids through nightly D&D mods with morals instead of reading them bedtime stories, to a police detective terrified his office will discover his hobby.

Along the way, I duel foes with foam-padded weapons, let the demon Cthulhu destroy my parents’ beach house, and survive an existential awakening brought on by Scandinavia’s avant-garde larp scene.
