26 S La Grange Rd, La Grange


From the bestselling author of There Are No Children Here, a richly textured, heartrending portrait of the impact of violence on Chicago's most vulnerable neighborhoods.

The numbers are staggering: over the past twenty years in Chicago, 14,033 people have been killed and another roughly 60,000 wounded by gunfire. What does that do to the spirit of individuals and community? Drawing on his decades of experience, Alex Kotlowitz set out to chronicle one summer in the city, writing about individuals who have emerged from the violence and whose stories capture the capacity--and the breaking point--of the human heart and soul.
