Praise for Growing Up and Russell Baker

“A wondrous book, funny, sad, and strong…[with scenes] as funny and touching as Mark Twain’s.”—Los Angeles Times Book Review 

“Lovely haunting prose….[Baker] moves beyond the boundaries of his newspaper column to establish a place for this book among the most enduring recollections of American boyhoods—those of Thurber and Mencken, Aldrich and Twain.”—The Washington Post Book World

“One of the most heart-warming, inspiring, nostalgic, funniest, best-written books I have ever read.”—Ann Landers
“[Baker is] a precious national resource.”—Neil Postman

“The saddest, funniest, most tragical yet comical picture of coming of age in the U.S.A. in the Depression years and World War II that has ever been written.”—Harrison Salisbury
