9781491782859: Beyond The Fence: Converging Memoirs

There is a perversion of the American Dream that says greed is good, and that we should live, love, work, and advance inside the fences drawn by politics, religion, and laws. It is wrong. Through senseless inner-city death, the My Lai massacre, the taking of the Pueblo, a drug-addled return from Vietnam, and a trip across the United States with a Frisbee, the authors tell how The American Dream is still reachable, but you have to get out beyond the fences to find it. This book shows how two people did it.

About the Author:

John T. Hourihan Jr., a retired journalist, has won state, regional and national awards for his opinion column in several New England newspapers. He received the Cross of Gallantry for valor in Vietnam, where he served nearly three years as a Vietnamese linguist. He is disabled now from the effects of Agent Orange. He lives with his author wife Lin Hourihan (The Virtue of Virtues) in the woods of central Massachusetts.

Amanda Eppley is a Swarthmore College graduate and holds a master's degree from the University of California at Berkeley. She taught in inner city Oakland as a Teach for America corps member and in suburban Massachusetts where she coached soccer and co-founded the school's GSA (Gay-Straight Alliance). Currently, she lives in Berkeley, California with her husband and their two sons, and she works for University of California, Berkeley's Center for Cities + Schools as a Program Manager and Technology Specialist for the Y-PLAN, a social justice initiative that engages and empowers young people as critical actors in the process of community and educational transformation.
