A. Cleveland Harrison“In A Little Rock Boyhood, A. Cleveland Harrison (already the author of an unforgettable World War II memoir) offers us not only an earlier stage of autobiography—told with characteristic warmth, candor, humor, and a superb eye and ear for the telling detail—but a personal portrait of a seminal place at the heart of America, struggling through its most dramatic era. Even more, Harrison recounts vividly what it was like for his generation to grow up amid the Great Depression—an eloquent and especially fitting saga for our times.”
Anthony Weller, a novelist and award-winning journalist, is the author of First Into Nagasaki and Weller’s War
“Cleveland Harrison is a natural memoirist. He can recall his life with clarity, but more important, he has a knack for recording it in an interesting — even
arresting — fashion. A Little Rock Boyhood is a valuable contribution to the historical record of the state, and I urge Arkansans to read this new book.
Tom Dillard, Columnist and Historian, Arkansas Democrat-Gazette
