A Berkshire boyhood : confessions and reflections of a baby boomer by Robert J Begiebing( file )
1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 0 libraries worldwide
Neither celebrity-gawk,?misery memoir,? nor confessional melodrama, A Berkshire Boyhood is more reminiscent of such memoirs as Tobias Wolff's This Boy's Life and Emily Fox Gordon's Are You Happy? In fact, A Berkshire Boyhood will strike readers as a parallel universe to Gordon's book, her own story of growing up in Williamstown, Massachusetts, as a privileged faculty brat and young girl in the 1950s. Berkshire Boyhood is a boy's story of growing up from working class roots in that same place and time. It explores family troubles arising out of the wounds and separations of World War II, ethnic religiosity, and adolescent sexuality (1950s variety). Its deeper appeal comes from our curiosity about the 1950s and the Boomer generation, from the fraught relations between that generation and their parents, who fought WWII, from our interest in the influence of landscape on human development, and from a vision of post-war years as a decade seething with the anger and dissent of an incipient counterculture that would explode the sixties
