AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'My name's Cameron Wolfe. I have a little bit of sense. I don't have much sense. My older brother Ruben gets me into plenty of trouble. I get Rube into as much trouble as he gets me into. I have a family, yes, that doesn't really function without tomato sauce. That's me.

'Cameron and Ruben Wolfe are brothers. They spend most of their time throwing one-handed boxing matches (they only have the one pair of gloves) and plotting to rob the local dentists. But what Cameron really wants is to meet a girl - a real girl, not like the ones in the lingerie magazines. But who could ever love an underdog like Cameron Wolfe?'
