The Good Times begins where Russell Baker's wondrous memoir Growing Up left off. It is the story of how a very raw youth, supported by an extraordinary mother's love, and prodded by her dauntless desire for him to succeed, somehow actually did. His odyssey from a lowly police reporter's beat in Baltimore to the journalistic heights, reporting on the Queen of England and the great folk in Washington, D.C ... and from the homespun truths of his upbringing to the mirrors and masks he learned to see through in the grownup world ... is deliciously funny, movingly heartfelt, and unsparingly revealing. It is Russell Baker at his best. The best there is.
