For years I d heard about folks interested to get a first edition copy of this novel so I d assumed it was a classic Written in the time before Goodreads it does not have a long history of reviews there but I trust many members have read this classic since it first came out in 1985 Republished now as an ebook under the aegis of Open Road Media this little gem gets a new airingA young boy grows up in his single mother s beachside home in South Carolina She works all day as a professor so often leaves him to his own devices He makes friends among the locals his maid s friends and chums at the local public school Thinking that a little encouragement from birth might make a difference in his development as a writer of repute his mother surrounds his crib with classic literature He is given a notebook in which to record his adventuresOur boy Simons pronounced Simmons Everson Manigault is twelve He has a vocabulary that belies his chronological age but there is much about the world he still needs to learn The mysteries of adulthood top his listWritten in dialect and in the sketchy way of a journal this may be a little hard to follow at first but rewards the reader in the end I recommend plowing through for by the end you have entered into the language the time the place and the ethos Circling back to the start once again you will realize how much you understood and how much you would still like to glean from this marvelous harvest We understand deep in our bones what has happened here and how the world truly a mystery to an adolescent who has no grasp of larger issues appears to unfurl in all its tattered glory

Unusual prose some of it blistering And by some of it I mean two sentences The rest is annoyingly self important blather Sure the author flouts convention But convention is there for a reason in this case READABILITY What seems inventive and fresh in snippets uickly becomes grating Grating like that person behind you in the movie theatre eating malted milk balls one after another chewing furiously Grating like the woman in the cubicle next to you at work scratching her head with the tip of a steel nail file Scritch scritch scritch You know what that noise is only because you kept hearing it and snuck a look Aren t you sorry now
