Rate this:
Written when James was 70, A Small Boy & Others, long out of print, is an exquisitely artful dramatic monologue on a young boy's search for the aesthetic clue. James finds his evidence in the refined reconstructions of his family life, his imagination, his travel, & his memories of the streets & neighborhoods of 19th-century New York. A Small Boy & Others is a very personal study of fate, memory, & the wonder of youthful consciousness & curiosity. It is also a love letter of sorts to New York City in the third quarter of the 19th century. With wit & curiosity evident on every page, A Small Boy & Others transformed the art of autobiography.
