What other readers are saying about this title:
Dell Parsons, just 15 in 1960, is about to experience events that will color his views of life forever. His parents rob a bank. To call this a coming-of-age book diminishes it. Ford makes you think about living your life whatever you’ve been handed. In his acknowledgments Ford calls out Wallace Stegner, the work of William Maxwell and Blake Morrison’s memoir And When Did You Last See Your Father as work that inspired him. No wonder I got so much pleasure from his wonderful prose; those are some of my favorite authors. Highly recommended.
