‘Deceptively simple writing weaves the reader in to stories of the author’s early years in the Bronx. Characters are drawn with clean, deft stokes that bring a remarkable cast to life as richly full, complex, almost heart-breakingly real people, just as their influences mapped out the makings of the author. Hargreaves’ encompassing settings and spare, clear language transport the reader to a time and place that are no more, and we are improved by the journey. A beautiful read. Highly recommend.’
Growing Up Bronx is available in print and eBook formats from online booksellers globally, or directly from Five Rivers.
