Children of the Hollow is Vernon F. Reed’s story of the tragedies and triumphs of children who survive in the face of parental neglect and community ostracism. Set in Knoxville, Tennessee, the author is forced to confront the attitudes and prejudices that were a part of his childhood. Many of the children born “in the hollow” accept the hopelessness and despair that is so much a part of their parents’ existence. The voices of the children echo the desperation of lives that must endure neglect as well as the depravity of prostitution and incest. Vernon gives a voice and reality to those children who survive the poverty of spirit and never lose the capacity to dream.
