    Sinopsis de: "The Newspaper Boy"

    Named to?Kirkus Reviews?Best Books of 2015 The Newspaper Boy is a remarkable collection of memories and personal reflections of the deep emotional conflicts a young newspaper delivery boy, Chervis Isom, encountered while growing up in Birmingham, Alabama, in a time of racial strife and discord in the 1950s and early '60s.
