Stop-Time: A Memoir by Frank Conroy

First published in 1967, Stop-Time was immediately recognized as a masterpiece of modern American autobiography, a brilliant portrayal of one boy's passage from childhood to adolescence and beyond. Here is Frank Conroy's wry, sad, beautiful tale of life on the road; of odd jobs and lost friendships, brutal schools and first loves; of a father's early death and a son's exhilarating escape into manhood.

Captivating, simple story about Conroy's youth. Not the usual coming-of-age, but also not full of narrative tricks. I disagree--this is not 'Catcher in the Rye' with a different title. Cynicism can't touch this book. It's sincere without being overly earnest or naive.

I was assigned this book in my freshman english class. My question to you is, how many times will they have us read Catcher in the Rye with a different title. Frank Conroys descriptions are considerably lacking. I did not enjoy this book at all.
