Mary McCarthy's Collected Memoirs. Three candid, affecting memoirs by the New York Times–bestselling author of The Group, including a National Book Award finalist. In Memories of a Catholic Girlhood, Mary McCarthy begins with her recollections of a happy childhood cut tragically short by the death of her parents during the influenza epidemic of 1918. Tempering memory with invention, McCarthy describes how, orphaned at six, she spent much of her childhood shuttled between two sets of grandparents and three religions-Catholic, Protestant, and Jewish.

Spanning approximately forty years, these memoirs are tied together with the thematic thread of a writer-to-be coming of age. They chronicle his discoveries of nature, family, love, community and self. For several years he becomes immersed in music as a member of an R&B and jazz band. During the 1960s Civil Rights Movement he narrowly escapes, but has a close look at death by the hands of law enforcement officers in of all places, a college campus. He drops out of college, fights off drug abuse and winds up in the U.S. Army during the Vietnam War. After regaining his equilibrium, he continues his higher education, and realizes some measure of personal success. During this time he is recruited by the CIA. The final piece, "Rewind", reveals a mature, stable, self-aware man who knows who he is and where he fits into the world as he now sees it-a still-racist world that is reluctant to embrace him, but one in which he is determined and prepared to realize his long-recurring dream of being a writer. Engaging and articulate, these memoirs go beyond being one person's life excerpts, to reflecting American history and culture, and human search for self.

Living to Tell: Collected Memoirs by Eddy Douglas Brown is an engaging
account of the life of a maturing manchild whose experiences proved to
be a journey filled with uncertainties and confusion. This is a
brilliantly written memoir that embraces the reader in a most
mysterious way. I yearned to follow the author from page to page as a
curious observer. This journey is sometimes humorous and sometimes
seriously thought provoking as the author makes choices that are
suspect to his upbringing. The struggle for the author is to make
sense of senseless circumstances as the journey takes the manchild
into manhood. I enjoyed reading and rereading this book. The author
is a wonderfully inspiring writer. This is a "must read"
memoir. I suggest this book as a gift to anyone that reads for
complete pleasure.

I will readily admit that I am as curious as the next fellow when given the opportunity of a glimpse into someone else's very private world; with ease and graciousness, this author accomplishes that, drawing you into memories of life's private moments that are at times endearing, laugh-out-loud-funny, and sadly tragic. Reading this autobiography made me feel as though I was spending time with a dear friend, engrossed in his stories. At the end of each chapter, I rushed toward the next, wanting to know more about this boy who became a man, his experiences and those that shared the journey with him. Hopefully, this is just the "tip of the iceberg" of works to be produced by this author--if you're like me, this one will move you, touch you in many ways, and leave you wanting for more.

I really liked little Eddy Brown from the very first pages of his book. I bet he was a joy to his mother. This book shares with the reader a glimpse of what is going on inside the head of a youngster, as he tries to make sense of the world around him, and then it chronicles through parts of his life as he grows, struggles, and matures. The victory contained within the pages of his book is that he did survive, and the rest of us are better for it.
