More About In the New World by Lawrence Wright
 
 
 
Overview
We first meet Larry Wright in 1960. He is thirteen and moving with his family to Dallas, the essential city of the New World just beginning to rise across the southern rim of the United States. As we follow him through the next two decades the civil rights movement, the Vietnam War, the devastating assassinations of John F. Kennedy, Robert Kennedy, and Martin Luther King, Jr., the sexual revolution, the crisis of Watergate, and the emergence of Ronald Reagan we relive the pivotal and shocking events of those crowded years.
Lawrence Wright has written the autobiography of a generation, giving back to us with stunning force the feelings of those turbulent times when the euphoria of Kennedy s America would come to its shocking end. Filled with compassion and insight, In the New World is both the intimate tale of one man s coming-of-age, and a universal story of the American experience of two crucial decades."
