Sintesi dell'editore

A book that instantly captured the hearts of readers across the country, An American Childhood is Pulitzer Prize-winning author Annie Dillard’s poignant, vivid memoir of growing up in Pittsburgh in the 1950s.

Much of the book focuses on her parents and some of her intellectual pursuits. Her mother was a non-conformist; her father taught her about plumbing and economics, and shared his enthusiasm for the novel On The Road. Annie took piano and dance classes, went rock and bug collecting, and loved books, especially about World War II.

Stay fir the ending

This book haunts me. Not because of its beginning or middle. The last 15 minutes cuts me down the middle and makes me see myself for who I am. Beautiful like poetry

The early formation of one of our great literary minds

A fascinating memoir of Annie Dillard’s first seventeen years. This book is dense and intricate with interest and meaning, and resonant with themes that the author explores in her other work. I look forward to returning to it again and again.
Tavia Gilbert may very well be my favorite audiobook narrator. She’s brilliant at interpreting Annie Dillard.

Overblown narration

Dillard is a superlative reader but narration is awful; narrator sounds like a teacher reading to squirmy toddlers. It's a shame, as the book, which I plan to buy, is a gem.

brought me back in time

I met a kindred spirit on this book and re-examined life through the spirited, imaginative eyes of a child. Delightful, thoughtful, soulful.

Very Disappointing

Overwritten, overly boring. I cannot imagine how a Pulitzer Prize-winning author could write such an uninteresting memoir. It is, and by far, the worst memoir I have ever read. I only wish I had heeded the poor reviews on Amazon.com before wasting my monthly credit on this one.
