The Pulitzer Prize-winning memoir about coming of age in America between the world wars: "So warm, so likable and so disarmingly funny" (The New York Times).

One of the New York Times' "50 Best Memoirs of the Past 50 Years"

Ranging from the backwoods of Virginia to a New Jersey commuter town to the city of Baltimore, this remarkable memoir recounts Russell Baker's experience of growing up in pre-World War II America, before he went on to a celebrated career in journalism.

With poignant, humorous tales of powerful love, awkward sex, and courage in the face of adversity, Baker reveals how he helped his mother and family through the Great Depression by delivering papers and hustling subscriptions to the Saturday Evening Posta job which introduced him to bullies, mentors, and heroes who endured this national disaster with hard work and good cheer.

Called "a treasure" by Anne Tyler and "a blessing" by Time magazine, this autobiography is a modern-day classic"a wondrous book [with scenes] as funny and touching as Mark Twain's" (Los Angeles Times Book Review).

"In lovely, haunting prose, he has told a story that is deeply in the American grain." The Washington Post Book World

"A terrific book." St. Louis Post-Dispatch
