Coram Boy

Jamila Gavin, Author Farrar Straus Giroux $7.95 (336p) ISBN 978-0-374-41374-3

In our Best Books citation, PW wrote, ""In the great tradition of Dickens, Gavin contrasts the desperate existence of city dwellers in the 18th century with the privileged life on country estates. The author never shows her hand as the disparate threads of her narrative join together into a seamless whole."" Ages 12-up. (Apr.)
