    Book Description:

    Sam Cornish’s 1935 is a memoir of growing up Black in Baltimore during the Depression and World War II. Melding autobiography, poetry, and fiction, the author, like John Dos Passos before him, creates a collage of American experience which allows him to weave twenty years of African-American family life into the life of a nation. For Sam Cornish, a writer’s education contains the radiance and terror of history. Read more about this memoir at ChickenBones: A Journal
