A prize-winning memoir of the author's Depression boyhood

This warmly humorous and touching portrait of a boy's coming-of-age in rural Texas has justifiably earned much praise for its humanity and limpid writing style. Compared favorably with Russell Baker's Growing Up, Paper Hero introduces us to the imaginative, sensitive, baseball-throwing, rock-chunking, cow-milking boy who became one of his state's most popular writers.
