A PEN/Hemingway Award-winning writer who is clearly in love with language and haunted by memory offers his most moving and poignant effort yet. In a memoir at once affecting, witty, and dead-on accurate, Cooper gives readers the chance to accompany him as he reinvents memory, calling back with delicacy and sureness his impressions of a Los Angeles boyhood.
