Prairie Avenue

Prairie Avenue - Arthur Meeker This was the 2nd time I had read the book, though I don't remember when the first was, just that it was years before. The book was originally published in 1949, so that tells you how good it was to bring it back. It follows a young man and his family growing up in uppercrust Victorian Chicago, and is written from his perspective as a person almost observing society and the changes happening around him. He is sort of an outsider (he was taken in by an uncle and aunt), and is always kind of an outsider in the family, in the cliques that his cousins circulate in; tolerated out of family obligations and kindness. I enjoyed the book very much and would recommend it to all.
