In a prose that is so beautiful it is poetry, wesee the world of growing up and going somewherethrough the dust and heat of Fresno's industrialside and beyond: It is a boy's coming of age in thebarrio, parochial school, attending church, publicsummer school, and trying to fall out of love so hecan join in a Little League baseball team.
His is a clarity that rings constantly through thewarmth and wry reality of these sometimeshumorous, sometimes tragic, always human remembrances.
