about this item
In a prose that is so beautiful it is poetry, we see the world of growing up and going somewhere through the dust and heat of Fresno's industrial side and beyond: It is a boy's coming of age in the barrio, parochial school, attending church, public summer school, and trying to fall out of love so he can join in a Little League baseball team.His is a clarity that rings constantly through the warmth and wry reality of these sometimes humorous, sometimes tragic, always human remembrances.
A collection of short prose pieces by the author of
A Summer Life describes the author's boyhood growing up in the barrio in the 1950s and 1960s, his experience on the Little League team, and his parochial school life. Reprint.
