Escaped Alone: A Memoir of an Incomplete Southerner

Post  worldcit on Mon Aug 19, 2013 5:10 pm

To date, the best name anyone has come up with for my generation (the children of "The Greatest Generation") is "The Baby Boomers"--and even that only applies to those of us who were born in or after 1945, when our fathers returned from fighting and winning WWII.  Yet, when we stop to think about it, we nod in recognition at the reminder that we do indeed have our own distinction as a generation.  We are the ones, our world made safe once again, who had the time, the security, and the mysterious inclination to look around us at our newly-redeemed society.  We are the ones who, with the pure and literal vision of children, began noticing the injustice of various forms of discrimination--and who were able to accept none of the reasons for it.  We are the ones who, at first in isolation, later in company with other like-minded companions met along the way, grew up, obtained some education and some empowerment, and eventually began the battle to transform the conscience of America regarding racial, religious, and lifestyle prejudices.  

Many people have given us their historical accounts of the marches, the movements, the sit-ins, the demonstrations, the other methods used to accomplish this transformation.  To my knowledge, though, no one has ever attempted, in a nonfiction account, to address the topic of exactly how this new kind of conscience was formed. Until now. This is what I've done in "Escaped Alone."  The story chronicled is my own.  At its heart lay a conviction of our common humanity--a conviction that rested firmly on the sure foundation of my Catholic faith.  

The range of types of people who have already enjoyed this story is wide.  The link provided will show you my author web page, where you can find a more detailed description of the book and see what some of its readers have been saying about it.
