Coming of Age in the 21st Century
Growing Up in America Today
Coming of Age in the 21st Century by Mary Frosch
Book DescriptionFollowing in the footsteps of the highly successful "Coming of Age in America" and "Coming of Age Around the World," this new anthology of fiction and memoir explores coming of age in the new millennium. Twenty-one stories by noted authors including Sherman Alexie, Mary F. Chen, Junot Diaz, Louise Erdrich, Seth Kantner, and ZZ Packer explore the trials and tribulations of growing up in our increasingly fragmented world. Issues of identity, sexuality, solitude, and conflict are beautifully presented through the voices of writers of all ages and ethnicities, from Lan Samantha Chang tackling absent or dead parents in "The Eve of the Spirit Festival" to Emily Rabateau addressing race in "Mrs. Turner's Lawn Jockeys." With a preface and introductions to each piece by Mary Frosch providing cultural context, this collection is a stunning literary tribute to a new generation of global citizens that provides a distinctively American sense of hope.

Twenty-four stories by renowned international authors chronicle the modern struggle for identity among young people around the globe. Editors Adiele and Frosch make a strong case for the importance of sharing stories as they consider whether coming of age is a Western--or universal--concept.
