Adult Fiction EARLEY
Summary: A New York Times bestseller. Set in the tiny town of Aliceville, North Carolina early in the 20th century when electricity was stringing its way east to west, Jim the Boy is a luminous portrait of ten-year-old Jim and his life with his widowed mother and his three uncles. Jim the Boy gives readers a glimpse at a bygone era. Jim plays baseball, follows 'the uncles' around, and climbs greased poles at the school fair, ecstatically beating out his best friend. Deftly entering the world of this 10-year-old, Earley masterfully explores Jim's growing awareness of the complex world that shelters him. A profound act of historical and psychological imagination, Jim the Boy is a simple story you won't be able to forget.
