Description
Selected by Granta as one of America's 20 best young writers and the author of the short story collection Here We Are in Paradise, Tony Earley penned this luminous first novel in 2000 about ten-year-old Jim Glass growing up in Depression-era Aliceville, North Carolina. Raised by his mother and her three brothers, Jim is on the edge of adulthood, focusing on ball games and contests with his friends and also traveling with his uncles and discovering how big the world really is.

"From its title to its closing sentence, Tony Earley's first novel returns to basics, back to modernness in the old sense of the word. It's not a big book, just a good one—and in this instance 'good' is higher praise than 'great'."—NYTBR
