Riassunto: Slumber parties, swimming pools, boyfriends, lakeside summers, family holidays--Susan Allen Toth has captured it all in this delightful account of growing up in Ames, Iowa, in the 1950's. Charming, wise, funny, poignant, and true, Blooming celebrates an innocent and very American way of life.
Dal retro di copertina:
"Tender and finely textured . . . Toth has re-created memories with a journalist's ear and a novelist's touch. . . . She has conveyed more clearly than anyone I've ever read before what it was like to be a girl in the '50's."
--The New York Times Book Review
"Susan Allen Toth recalls the Ames of her adolescence in unforced, graceful language, that, without sacrificing either wit or precision, seems as leisured and peaceful as the town itself."
--San Francisco Examiner
"Not only is her book well written, but gosh does she have it right. . . . It's difficult to believe she can remember so well or record with such care. The clarity of her style and the honesty of her introspection evoke an image of a Midwestern Joan Didion."
--The Wall Street Journal
