Item Description...
Things As They Are is a novel about a boy's transition from the state of innocence to knowledge.

Publishers Description

"Mr. Horgan manages . . . to make the morning of life as pristine as the dawn of creation itself."--"New York Times"

"A work of rare beauty . . . has a lyrical quality that is rare today."--"Best Sellers"

"Mr. Horgan writes as a poet and as the biographer of us all." --"Book Week"Richard is a young boy growing up in turn-of-the-century upstate New York, sheltered in a loving Catholic family. His happy world consists largely of illusions. These are shattered as Richard learns about "things as they are"--a remorseless succession of encounters with the casual brutality of schoolboys, the faithlessness of adults, the silence of God, and the cruelty in his own heart. Yet Paul Horgan finds courage and beauty in the ruins of Richard's dream world. Hope is also part of "things as they are," and Horgan's subtle, powerful vision makes this classic tale of lost innocence a novel that resonates deeply in the soul.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Thing as They Are  Jan 9, 2007
I liked the book. Life from a child's view is something adults tend to forget. We tend to believe that childhood is a carefree, unaware and uncomplicated time. It's not. I wish I would have read it when my children were small. I may have been more patient and understanding.
Things as more books should be  Jul 12, 2005
This is a beautifully written book about different occurances in a young boy's life that make him loose his innocence. It is filled with some tear jerking metaphors, powerful quotes, and a sad and wonderfully accurate portryal of life. It is a 'Catcher in the Rye'-esque read that leaves you feeling nostalgic sad and happy all at once.
