(From the publisher):
Frequently compared to Mark Twain's masterpieces about boyhood, City Boy spins a hilarious and often touching tale of an urban boy's adventures and misadventures on the street, in school, in the countryside, always in pursuit of Lucille, a heartless redhead personifying all the girls who torment and fascinate pubescent lads of eleven.
To readers who associate Herman Wouk principally with the monumental epics on which his fame largely rests-novels such as The Caine Mutiny, The Winds of War, and War and Remembrance-the continuous comic entertainment afforded by City Boy will no doubt be a delightful discovery.
