Description: The acne and ecstasy of adolescence, a multicultural collection of short stories and fiction excerpts thatLibrary Journalcalls "wonderfully diverse from the standard fare." By turns touching and hilarious, the classicComing of Age in Americagathers together writers from fifteen different ethnic groups who, through their fiction, explore the terrain we all traverse as we come of age, no matter our race, ethnicity, gender, or class. With over twenty short stories and fiction excerpts by noted authors such as Julia Alvarez and Frank Chin, Dorothy Allison and Adam Schwartz, Reginald McNight and Tobias Wolff,Coming of Age in Americashows that our common experiences are more binding than our differences are divisive. Since its initial publication in 1994,Coming of Age in Americahas evolved from a groundbreaking collection of underrepresented voices into a timeless album of unforgettable literature. Its editor, Mary Frosch, has since created a series of celebrated anthologies, includingComing of Age Around the Worldand the forthcomingComing of Age in the 21st Century. A wonderfully readable collection, this is a marvelous resource for those looking for stories that illustrate the convergence of cultural experience and literature.
