The early 1970's were a time of political, cultural, and social upheaval. But what was it like to be growing up in the middle of it all? Author Cathleen Maza offers some answers in this collection of personal essays and fictional stories.
"The stories are all based on actual events that took place in the Chicago neighborhood I was born and raised in from 1963 to 1974. I came to realize that there was a wealth of events from my childhood that actually touched on subjects like civil rights, abortion, and the struggle of living in a radically changing urban area."
Through the use of classic short story presentation, historical fiction readers will find this collection particularly personal, powerful, and filled with a unique insight to events that helped shape and redefine the world we live in.
BIOGRAPHY I write full-time in the Chicago suburb of Oak Park, Illinois, where I live in a one-hundred-year-old home with my family. A member of the Society of Midland Authors, my short fiction has been published in several literary venues including "Crack the Spine", "Clover", and "Chicago Quarterly Review". I began independently publishing my own story collections in various genres about four years ago, but still enjoy writing short fiction for literary magazines.
