Description The Boyhood Memoirs of A. E. Hotchner de A.E. Hotchner:

"King of the Hill" is A. E. Hotchner's memoir of his impoverished childhood in St. Louis, originally published in 1972. Hotchner's story is one of ingenuity and spirit in the face of economic hardship during the Great Depression. Left to live alone in a rundown hotel while his traveling salesman father is on the road, his mother is hospitalized, and his younger brother is sent to live with relatives, young Hotchner's determination to survive overcomes the challenge of keeping his situation secret. "Looking for Miracles" is a sequel to "King of the Hill", originally published in 1975. The story takes place in 1936, three years after "King of the Hill", when Hotchner bluffs his way into a job as a summer counselor at a camp in the Ozarks. The story is poignant and uplifting, as well as hilariously entertaining. Bound together for the first time, these two boyhood memoirs of Hotchner's will touch readers with their truth, innocence, and joy. Hotchner's ability to convey times of intense hardship in warm and witty language attests to his stature as one of America's great storytellers. A. E. Hotchner is the author many books and plays- including Papa Hemingway and The Day I Fired Alan Ladd and Other World War II Adventures (University of Missouri Press). With Paul Newman, he is cofounder of Newman's Own, Inc.
