Beschreibung

A moving tale of young love, family values, and growing up during wartime from bestselling author Dan Wakefield At the height of World War II, Artie Garber turns eleven years old in his hometown of Birney, Illinois. When his older brother, Roy, joins the US Marines, Artie is left to defend the home front-as well as Roy's high school sweetheart, Shirley. Without the guidance of his beloved big brother, Artie resorts to reading advice in Collier's on how to identify spies and search for German aircraft over the lush fields of Illinois. As Artie works to protect Shirley-a lost cause, despite the cheerleader's best efforts-he must come to grips with his own burgeoning sexuality as he steps cautiously toward adulthood. Rendered in stunning, peeled-back prose, Under the Apple Tree realistically depicts one boy's loss of innocence and the devastating effects of war felt far beyond the battlefield.



Autorentext

Dan Wakefield (b. 1932) is the author of the bestselling novels Going All the Way and Starting Over, which were both adapted into feature films. His memoirs include New York in the Fifties, which was made into a documentary film of the same name, and Returning: A Spiritual Journey, praised by Bill Moyers as “one of the most important memoirs of the spirit I have ever read.” Wakefield created the NBC prime time series James at 15, and wrote the screenplay for Going All the Way, starring Ben Affleck. He edited and wrote the introduction for Kurt Vonnegut Letters as well as If This Isn’t Nice, What Is?: Vonnegut’s Advice to the Young.
