Reviews

Wonderfully varied . . . unique in its focus . . . I recommend this anthology with great enthusiasm. At a time when the gap between rich and poor seems to be growing ever larger and in which communication among classes seems to be at an all-time low, these memoirs have the potential to enlighten readers both in the university and beyond it.--Julia Prewitt Brown "author of Jane Austen's Novels: Social Change and Literary Form "
Coming of Age offers invaluable insights into what it means to come of age for youth who struggle to overcome disadvantages and find their place in American society. The memoirs are rich, vivid, and well-written.--Nazli Kibria "author of Family Tightrope: The Changing Lives of Vietnamese Americans "
