There Are No Children Here: The Story of Two Boys Growing Up in the Other Americaby Alex Kotlowitz
Synopses & Reviews
The New York Times
This meticulous portrait of two boys in a Chicago housing project shows how much heroism is required to survive, let alone escape. Kotlowitz's story informs the heart.
San Francisco Chronicle
Amid the darkness and ever-present despair, Kotlowitz beautifully captures the moments of brightness and hope. Easily could become the 1990s equivalent of Michael Harrington's The Other America.
This is the moving and powerful account of two remarkable boys struggling to survive in Chicago's Henry Horner Homes, a public housing complex disfigured by crime and neglect.
Includes bibliographical references (p. 314-315) and index.
