He was born and raised in Norwood, Massachusetts, twelve miles outside of Boston, where Yankee and Irish cultures bumped against each other. The narrative traces his personal growth, shaped by family, school, baseball, radio drama, and art. He was the first in his family to attend college, and the book ends with his undergraduate experience at Harvard, class of 1964. Along with this coming-of-age story, the book features forays back in time, including chapters on each of Fanning's parents and historical excavations and meditations on three ancestors."@en ;
