Synopsis

When Paxton Davis and his fellow soldiers returned from WW II, they found a changed America. In A BOY NO MORE, Davis describes the world that awaited them--a world created by the generation that gave us our amazing triumph in WW II and powered our emergence as global superstar.

Davis was typical. He took up schooling at Johns Hopkins, went to work, married and begat. This loving book is among the finest of his creations.

"Readers of this disarming, stylish story will treasure the newspaperman's early experiences." (Publishers Weekly)

A BOY NO MORE completes a trilogy which began with BEING A BOY and continued with A BOY'S WAR.

All along the way, the author tells his story by drawing loving portraits of dozens of fellow students, teachers, fellow reporters, and editors--which, while emerging from the page with great skill and immediacy, offer a core experience perhaps insufficiently strong to attract most readers.
