Living Up The Street Free download ✓ 108 Gary Soto ↠ 8 Free download Free read Living Up The Street In a prose that is so beautiful it is poetry we see the world of growing up and going somewhere through the dust and heat of Fresno's industrial side and beyond. I first read this book of narrative recollections when I was in my 20s and I remember being deeply impressed with the lyricism and honesty in these short pieces Recently I have been searching for bite sized examples of exceptional writing to share with the middle school students whom I tutor and I thought again of how much I enjoyed this book Due to its local unavailability I had to reuest an interlibrary loan but after a long month of waiting Living Up the Street and I were reunited and left alone together to get reacuainted The book presumably has not changed so any differences in reception will be because of me Now that I am in my 40s and that my aim is to find writings that I can comfortably introduce to 12 to 15 year olds without creating controversy how will I respond to this book The good news is that the book is still the same powerfully descriptive and so incisive about childhood and young adulthood that however disparate our experiences were the author was a poor Hispanic boy living in Fresno in the 1960 s while I was a middle class white girl growing up in a rural town in Wyoming in the 1980 s there was not an unfamiliar or false note in here His stories continue to evoke the real essence of childhood the strange and complex hierarchy that is only found among children the wanton exploratory violence like lion cubs at play the instinctual realizations about the surrounding adults The childhood portion is told without much sentimental ornamentation such as the story of his first love whom he was unable to recognize out of a crowd However his early married years are described lovingly and with of an ache to them The stories are unflinchingly authentic and this unfortunately is a problem when it comes to sharing them in a uasi educational setting I loved the first story of the wild Soto children Being Mean but I d have a hard time sharing the episode where Gary and his brother set off to beat up some new neighborhood children who were Okies with sacks filled with cats Out of all of the stories I ended up with three that I could use Saturday with Jackie Bloodworth with a few small applications of a Sharpie and One Last Time It makes me a little sad that I could not choose Soto s real strength lies in his lyricism a trait that is common with poets turned novelists His use of metaphors is simply breath taking For instance in the short story Saturday with Jackie Gary entices his friend Jackie to go with him to the local shopping center They soon make a detour into an abandoned store that they break into taking us to this scene Once inside we looked around like astronauts on the moon A shaft of sunlight with its orbiting dust shone from the roof and ended in a seizure of light far on the other side where we made out desks chairs counters an open elevator and a broken mirror on the wall We walked carefully because of the dark Broken glass crunched under our shoes dust thick as the first minute of snow made us sneeze We sensed spiders but we didn t find any swinging on their trapeze We sensed mice but the only noises were from the things we knocked over We walked like blind men hands out and feeling the air pg 79Gary and Jackie end up stealing two manneuins from the store and realizing they have no one to sell them to make them fight each other using them like clubs until they are utterly destroyed This mixture of boredom senseless destruction and general lawlessness remind me powerfully of my own childhood I m curious to read it with this new generation of kids and see if they also connect to the underlying feelings Se intorc mortii acasa of growing up and going somewhere through the dust and heat Les mots sont des fenêtres (ou bien ce sont des murs) of Fresno's industrial side and beyond.
