9781565126022: The End of the World As We Know It: Scenes from a Life

The End of the World as We Know It In the tradition of Rick Bragg's "All Over but the Shoutin'," Goolrick has crafted a classic memoir of childhood and the secrets a heart can't forget. With devastating honesty and razor-sharp wit, he looks back with love, and with anger, at the parents who both created his world and destroyed it. Full description

Description du livre ALGONQUIN BOOKS OF CHAPEL HILL, United States, 2008. Paperback. État : New. 206 x 137 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. It was the 1950s, a time of calm, a time when all things were new and everything seemed possible. A few years before, a noble war had been won, and now life had returned to normal. For one little boy, however, life had become anything but normal. To all appearances, he and his family lived an almost idyllic life. The father was a respected professor, the mother a witty and elegant lady, someone everyone loved. They were parents to three bright, smiling children: two boys and a girl. They lived on a sunny street in a small college town nestled neatly in a leafy valley. They gave parties, hosted picnics, went to church just like their neighbors. To all appearances, their life seemed ideal. But it was, in fact, all appearances. Lineage, tradition, making the right impression these were matters of great importance, especially to the mother. But behind the facade this family had created lurked secrets so dark, so painful for this one little boy, that his life would never be the same. It is through the eyes of that boy a grown man now, revisiting that time that we see this seemingly serene world and watch as it slowly comes completely and irrevocably undone. Beautifully written, often humorous, sometimes sweet, ultimately shocking, this is a son s story of looking back with both love and anger at the parents who gave him life and then robbed him of it, who created his world and then destroyed it. As author Lee Smith, who knew this world and this family, observed, Alcohol may be the real villain in this pain-permeated, exquisitely written memoir of childhood but it is also filled with absolutely dead-on social commentary of this very particular time and place. A brave, haunting, riveting book. N° de réf. du libraire AAS9781565126022

Description du livre Algonquin Books, 2008. État : New. Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: "In this profoundly crushing yet redemptive memoir, Goolrick peels back hisskin for the reader. Through gorgeous prose, he gradually discloses layer uponlayer of deplorable abuse, and as the coating underneath becomes exposed,so too does an exquisitely sensitive soul, whose self-awareness is so uniquelywell articulated, it would shock me if the reader's heart went unchanged." --Amanda Stern, author of The Long Haul.
