Why subscribe to Once a Boy?

Once a Boy comes from the mighty brain of John Draper, former boy. Once a Boy consists of a weekly essay about boyhood delivered to your inbox.  My boyhood, specifically but, really, every man’s boyhood. We all did the same stupid shit.

Yeah, we’re brothers. Join me—four essays a month, and the archive will always be open.

If you want to enjoy it without paying anything, that’s fine. You can subscribe for $5 a month/$50 a year.

Who is John Draper? I’ve been a professional writer for 40 years, starting in newspapers. Back when newspapers were made out of paper. (It’s true. Google it if you don’t believe me.) A few years ago I published a novel, A Danger to God Himself, which is about a Mormon missionary who goes crazy on his mission.

Thanks for reading.
