TIME TO BE YOUNG by Whit -- Ed. Burnett


Email this review


For those perceptive and inquiring minds among young people, this is a stellar symposium of contributors, and expert selection from writing about youth, combined to make an anthology for all tastes, literary and popular. Here is the humor and gaiety and sadness, the awkwardness and tenderness as evoked by many of classical standing (Proust, Satayant, Katherine Mafield, Mark , Clare Day); there are others of more modern but equally perennial appeal (James Street, Irwin Edman, Mackilay Kastor, Ludwig , gway, Steinbeck, Marjorie Rawlings, Bertha Damon, Robert Benchley, Cornelia Otis Skinner, Thurber and others). Minimum of new names for a maximum of high merit and lasting enjoyment. Short stories, excerpts from novels, bits of autobiography, essays -- good sampling for introduction of many of these writers to teen age readers.
