More About The Boys of My Youth by Jo Ann Beard
 
 
 
Overview
Rarely does the debut of a new writer garner such attention and acclaim. The excitement began the moment "The Fourth State of Matter", one of the fourteen extraordinary personal narratives in this book, appeared in the pages of the New Yorker. It increased when Jo Ann Beard received a prestigious Whiting Foundation Award in November 1997. And it continued as the hardcover edition of The Boys of My Youth sold out its first printing even before publication. Jo Ann Beard writes with perfect pitch as she takes us through one woman's life -- from childhood to marriage and beyond -- and memorably captures the collision of youthful longing and the hard intransigences of time and fate.
