Tracy Daugherty:
The Boy Orator : A Novel - used book

ISBN: 087074433X

ID: 1276670

In Tracy Daugherty's third novel, childhood innocence and political ambition meet just prior to the First World War in the person of Harry Shaughnessy, an Oklahoma farmer' son. Gifted with a booming speaking voice and a charismatic presence, the boy learns the socialist credo from his father, who takes him on the road--from laborers' camps to county fairs to Oklahoma City--to spread the people's gospel to farmers, miners, and oil workers. Along the way young Harry encounters other socialist crusaders--Eugene V. Debs, Oscar Ameringer, and the dynamic red-haired feminist Kate O'Hare. Daugherty seamlessly integrates these historical figures into the compelling fictionalized tale of his own real-life grandfather's idealistic struggle for American workers and of his inevitable disillusionment with the defeat of the socialist cause. With an apt and unobtrusive use of the details of another era, Daugherty creates historical images as vivid as contemporary television images of Oklahoma City rescue workers cradling wounded children outside the bomb-devastated Murrah building. contemporary,domestic life,fiction,genre fiction,historical,literary,literature and fiction,women's fiction Literature & Fiction, Southern Methodist University Press
