Childhood: It’s not all fun and games. This summer, we're taking a look through the rear-view mirror—and, in the process, examining how our early years shape our adult selves. The writers featured in Creative Nonfiction #60 recount formative childhood experiences that leave indelible memories: stomping through a snowstorm to Sunday mass; discovering a dead body in the woods; touring beautiful homes they’ll never live in; or trying, desperately, to dance their way to junior high popularity. It’s kid-dom in all its messy glory: the good, the bad, and the biting truth.
