How Dear to My Heart (Library of Indiana Classics)by Emily Kimbrough
Synopses & Reviews
Best known for Our Hearts Were Young and Gay, written with Cornelia Otis Skinner, Emily Kimbrough was one of the most popular writers of this century. How Dear to My Heart, first published in 1944, is her tribute to a happy childhood spent in Muncie, Indiana, a humorous glance over her shoulder at the way things used to be.
"This is more than a funny book, a period piece. Dignity and love are never quaint. They were the essence of this civilization. They are the essence of a book which is going to be dear to a lot of hearts besides the author." --Boston Globe (on the original publication)
"... poignant, evocative, humorous." --Indiana Magazine of History
This is a story to bring back some of the things we shall never see or hear again- things to make us laugh and then catch our breath with a sharp stab of memory. For all of us, it is a happy, humorous glance over our shoulder at the way things used to be.
