Read full description of the books:



In Ordinary Resurrections, Jonathan Kozol offers a different, more hopeful vision of life in the South Bronx than was found in his previous book, Amazing Grace. Yes, there is poverty and depravation, but in this account, Kozol views the hardscrabble district through the eyes of the children who live there, and paints an admiring portrait of the teachers, priests, parents, and grandparents who strive against all odds to ensure that these children grow up with a strong sense of pride in who they are and where they come from.
