In this powerful and culminating work about a group of inner city children he has known for many years, Jonathan Kozol returns to the scene of his prize winning books Rachel and Her Children and Amazing Grace, and to the children he has vividly portrayed, to share with us their fascinating journeys and unexpected victories as they grow into adulthood For nearly fifty In this powerful and culminating work about a group of inner city children he has known for many years, Jonathan Kozol returns to the scene of his prize winning books Rachel and Her Children and Amazing Grace, and to the children he has vividly portrayed, to share with us their fascinating journeys and unexpected victories as they grow into adulthood For nearly fifty years Jonathan has pricked the conscience of his readers by laying bare the savage inequalities inflicted upon children for no reason but the accident of being born to poverty within a wealthy nation A winner of the National Book Award, the Robert F Kennedy Book Award, and countless other honors, he has persistently crossed the lines of class and race, first as a teacher, then as the author of tender and heart breaking books about the children he has called the outcasts of our nation s ingenuity But Jonathan is not a distant and detached reporter His own life has been radically transformed by the children who have trusted and befriended him Never has this intimate acquaintance with his subjects been apparent, or stirring, than in Fire in the Ashes, as Jonathan tells the stories of young men and women who have come of age in one of the most destitute communities of the United States Some of them never do recover from the battering they undergo in their early years, but many battle back with fierce and, often, jubilant determination to overcome the formidable obstacles they face As we watch these glorious children grow into the fullness of a healthy and contributive maturity, they ignite a flame of hope, not only for themselves, but for our society The urgent issues that confront our urban schools a devastating race gap, a pathological regime of obsessive testing and drilling students for exams instead of giving them the rich curriculum that excites a love of learning are interwoven through these stories Why certain children rise above it all, graduate from high school and do well in college, while others are defeated by the time they enter adolescence, lies at the essence of this work Jonathan Kozol is the author of Death at an Early Age, Savage Inequalities, and other books on children and their education He has been called today s most eloquent spokesman for America s disenfranchised But he believes young people speak most eloquently for themselves and in this book, so full of the vitality and spontaneity of youth, we hear their testimony.
