The Boys of My Youth

The Boys of My Youth

Jo Ann Beard


not often does the debut of a brand new author garner such consciousness & acclaim. the buzz started the instant "The Fourth nation of Matter," one of many fourteen notable own narratives during this e-book, seemed within the pages of the hot Yorker. It elevated whilst the writer got a prestigious Whiting starting place Award in November 1997, & it persisted because the hardcover version of the men of My formative years offered out its first printing even sooner than ebook. the writer writes with excellent pitch as she takes us via one woman's existence - from early life to marriage & past - & memorably captures the collision of younger longing & the demanding intransigences of time & destiny.
