Brooklyn 1944: a ten-year-old boy comes down with infantile paralysis, and must spend months in a hospital with others who have this disease, now known as polio. Away from a large and loving family, his experience becomes a rite of passage, showing the boy the way to a successful life. Movingly told, this story will appeal to anyone who enjoys reading tales of the triumph of the human spirit.

The first in a new, occasional series: “Local Lives.”
