Living Up The Street (eBook)


Description


In a prose that is so beautiful it is poetry, we  see the world of growing up and going somewhere  through the dust and heat of Fresno's industrial  side and beyond: It is a boy's coming of age in the  barrio, parochial school, attending church, public  summer school, and trying to fall out of love so he  can join in a Little League baseball team.

  His is a clarity that rings constantly through the  warmth and wry reality of these sometimes  humorous, sometimes tragic, always human remembrances.

Praise for Living Up The Street…


“One of those rare books that come from the author’s heart, tempered by his intelligence and made alive by imaginative spirit.”
