Hadacol Days: A Southern Boyhood

Clyde Bolton

Hadacol Days: A Southern Boyhood by Clyde BoltonClyde Bolton has long been a dean of the Southern sportswriting community. Now this popular columnist focuses his beguiling prose on his boyhood memories in his delightful memoir, Hadacol Days. The title is taken from a high school cheer: "Statham Wildcats on the Ball, They've Been Drinking Hadacol." The Statham in the cheer refers to Statham High School, Statham, Georgia, now as long gone as Hadacol, but equally effervescent in the author's nostalgic but clearheaded look back at what life was like in small Southern towns of the 1940s and 1950s.

Yesterday Morning

Diana Athill

Yesterday Morning by Diana AthillA remarkable, truthful and vivid recollection of childhood, from the author of Stet, After a Funeral, Don't Look at Me Like That and Instead of a Letter. Here Athill goes back to the beginning in a sharp evocation of a childhood unfashionably filled with happiness - a Norfolk country house, servants, the pleasures of horses, the unfolding secrets of adults and sex. This is England in the 1920s seen (with a clear and unsentimental eye) from the vantage point of England in 2001. It was a privileged and loving life: but did it equip the author to be happy?
