Über diesen Titel

Inhaltsangabe:

SIGNED EDITION (Growing Up, is Russel Baker's autobiography that describes his atypical life. Starting from humble beginnings in the mountains of West Virginia, Baker weathered a childhood that spanned the entire Depression, and later found success as a big city newspaperman. What was most enjoyable about this book was its genuine authenticity. Baker rattles off no frightening or boring statistics about the Depression. Rather, he writes about life as he saw it, progressively maturing as the book flows along. This, one would argue, is this book's most appealing quality. Baker never comes out to draw attention to himself at any time during the book. He lets the reader know if there was any particular activity that he was adept at, and surprisingly, those passages were surprisingly rare throughout the book)

Críticas:

WINNER OF THE PULITZER PRIZE FOR AUTOBIOGRAPHY

"A wondrous book, funny, sad, and strong. . . [with scenes] as funny and touching as Mark Twain's."--Mary Lee Settle, Los Angeles Times Book Review

"Baker has accomplished the memoirists's task: to find shape and meaning in his own life, and to make it interesting and pertinent to the reader. In lovely, haunting prose, he has told a story that is deeply in the American grain."--Jonathan Yardley, Washington Post Book World
