"One of the most appealing volumes among the flood of baby boomer memoirs .... Wright remembers in a smoothly articulate style that takes us back into history in near novelistic fashion."

-- Chicago Sun-Times

From the assassination of John F. Kennedy to the reelection of Ronald Reagan, this widely acclaimed, engaging memoir is both the story of one man's coming of age in 1960s Dallas and a provocative account of the end of American innocence. By bearing witness to the experiences that came to define an American era -- the Vietnam War, the sexual revolution, the civil rights movement, the crisis of Watergate, and the emergence of Ronald Reagan -- Lawrence Wright has written the autobiography of a generation, giving back to us with stunning force the feelings of those turbulent times.

"An extraordinary book .... This is history without detachment, a memoir made universal. To read it is to relive the times."

-- Kansas City Star

"Beautifully traces a young man's personal reckoning through the years of chaos in his homeland. In the New World succeeds because of its subtle interchange between memory and fact."

-- Boston Globe
