"[A] charmingly bittersweet memoir."―Boston Globe
"This memoir of [Hentoff's] youth should be appreciated not only by adults who grew up through the fires of their own youthful rebellion, but by those restless young people who are now bringing their own views and questions to the world they are inheriting. They could learn from this example that rebels can be gentle as well as enraged and compassionate in their commitment."―New York Times Book Review
"Nat Hentoff knows jazz. And it comes alive in this wonderful, touching memoir."―Ken Burns, creator of the PBS series Jazz
"This is a touching book about a painful, wonderful time in Boston...I loved it."―Anthony Lewis
