Growing up Poor
A Literary Anthology
Growing up Poor by Michael Coles
Book DescriptionIn a land of seemingly endless plenty, "Growing Up Poor" offers a startling and beautiful collection of stories, poems, and essays about growing up without. Searing in their candor, understated, and often unexpectedly moving, the selections range from a young girl's story of growing up in New York's slums at the turn of the twentieth century, to a southern family's struggles during the Depression, to contemporary stories of rural and urban poverty by some of our foremost authors. Thematically organized into four sections--on the material circumstances of poverty, denigration at the hands of others, the working poor, and moments of resolve and resiliency--the book combines the work of experienced authors, many writing autobiographically about their first-hand experience of poverty, with that of students and other contemporary writers. Edited and with an introduction by Pulitzer Prize-winning child psychiatrist Robert Coles, "Growing Up Poor" gives eloquent voice to those judged not by who they are, but by what they lack.
