Editorial Reviews

Review

"It is said that at the heart of every cliché lies a grain of truth. Each line of this book flickers between cliché and truth... William Walsh demonstrates that, when done well, the selection and arrangement of previously existing texts can result in fabulously original literature." ― Kenneth Goldsmith, founder of UbuWeb and author of Capital: New York, Capital of the 20th Century
"In FORTY-FOUR AMERICAN BOYS, William Walsh limns a complete series of cabinet portraits that show how tales, memories, and artifacts create the story of a life. But, of course, these are not just any lives. These are about forty-four of the most ambitious men in American history. By witnessing their childhood, Walsh shows when the commonality of boyhood mixes with the seeds of idealism and determination―the early sparks for the eventual combustion that will create something larger than life. FORTY-FOUR AMERICAN BOYS is a meticulously crafted collage of myth, legend, and fact that tells us as much about these boys as it tells us about ourselves as individuals and as a culture." ― Adam Braver, author of Mr Lincoln’s Wars and November 22, 1963
