I Know You Will Make It
In these thoughtful stories and poems, Safford Chamberlain skillfully evokes the post-World War II era when American society encouraged repression over expression and conformity over individuality, and he shows vividly the cost its young people paid as a result. His protagonistgs are imbued with the longing and uncertainty that come with change as they walk a fine line between maintaining the courage of their convictions and making terrible mistakes that may result in years of suffering and loneliness. The backdrop of nightclubs and jazz provides the perfect atmosphere for these young men to work through what troubles them. (Manuel Perea, Creative Writing Instructor, Pasadena City College)
