Annotation
One can imagine the pleasures of reading a memoir by the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Empire Falls, here recounts his upbringing in fading 1950s Gloversville, NY, much like the locales that make his fiction so memorable. But what should make this work truly arresting is his account of his mother, who wanted something better for herself and her son.
