Reviews - What do customers think about Short Pants to Scrub Suits the Making of a Surgeon?

Growing Up in Brooklyn  Jan 15, 2008
The author comes from a distinguished line of Brooklynites who came of age during the haunted fifties, when McCarthyism and the Korean War dominated the headlines. A smart, introspective only child of struggling middle-class Jewish parents, Fried paints a vivid picture of daily life in Flatbush during its heyday, the rites of adolescence, from the Bar Mitzvoh teacher to the discovery of girls, fishing in Sheepshed Bay, and the discovery that a distinguished medical school was not beyond the reach of a poor boy with no pedigree but a first-rate education at Brooklyn College. A memoir of uncommon modesty and grace, Fried's slender volume is compelling reading for young and old fans of true adventure stories.
