In a "mix of crime and memoir" ("San Francisco Chronicle"), Smith articulates with great humor and poignancy the wild jubilance of her extended French-Italian family struggling to survive in a post-World War II housing project in Connecticut. In the background is the sinister shadow of an approaching serial killer who forever alters the landscape of her childhood.
From the Publisher:
Traces the author's experiences of growing up in a small-town community under the shadows of a severely autistic brother and a violent serial pedophile who eventually murdered one of the writer's young classmates. By the author of She Smiled Sweetly. Reprint. 35,000 first printing.With beauty, power, and remarkable wit, Mary-Ann Tirone Smith interweaves a bittersweet portrait of growing up among the working stiffs of 1950s Hartford, Connecticut, with the chilling progress of a serial pedophile who threatens to shatter her small town's innocence. In Girls of Tender Age, Smith lovingly evokes the jubilance and chaos of life in her extended French-Italian family and the challenges of living with her brother Tyler, an autistic at a time before anyone knew what that meant. Hanging over Smith's rough-and-tumble youth is the shadow of the approaching killer who forever alters the landscape of her childhood.
