For Crying Out Loud is a bracing memoir by Richard Harsham, veteran freelance writer who is, also, a noted essayist, and a playwright with some twenty stage plays to his credit. For Crying Out Loud embarks on an exploration of the personal past with verve and finesse. By turns unflingchingly candid and riveting, Harsham's telling devoid of self-pity, with lyrical recall at the ready, he successfully skirts the pitfalls of sentimentally and the self-congratulatory clicking that many memoirs are heir to. Partial to William Faulkner's observation ("The past is never dead. It's not even past."), Harsham takes as his guiding precept the notion that attention must be paid pointing to the biblical injunction--"This, too, shall pass"--he is forever aware that only through Memory do we retrieve what would otherwise be lost to the mists of time.

"Noteworthy, Mr. Harsham writes very well and has something to say--two conditions not often found these daysin the publishing world."
-- Russell Baker (Pulitzer Prize for Growing Up and The Good Times.)
Commenting on Harsham's Rude Awakenings from the American Dream.
