About this title


Jim the Boy is the portrait of a young boy as he takes his first tentative steps toward adulthood in a tiny southern town earlier in this century. He plays baseball, attends a new school, and befriends a rival, all the while measuring himself against the high standards set by his mother and uncles and the long shadows cast by his dead father. Deftly entering the world of this ten-year-old, Earley masterfully explores Jim's growing awareness of the complex adult world that shelters him.
