EPUB Into That Good Night

Book description

Strong-willed and charismatic, Lester Rozelle was school superintendent in the small East Texas town of Oakwood from the 1930s to the 1960s. A deep-rooted fixture in the community, he guided his schools through disastrous fires and the strained process of integration in President Lyndon B. Johnson's home state. But several years ago, Lester began to show signs of Alzheimer's disease, and the author had to watch the painful transformation of his proud father into a dependent and ultimately foreign person.Into That Good Night is a son's gift. Seemingly powerless to do anything but witness the slow loss of his father's past, Ron Rozelle re-creates and reclaims his own past, the dusty streets, tired old houses, and wallpapered rooms of his childhood. Rozelle tells us of his early, confused discovery of racial inequality, his induction into the military during the Vietnam War, his decision to become a teacher himself, and the deaths of his parents. Poignant and impressionistic, Into That Good Night is a heartbreakingly lyrical memoir whose fine cadences and shimmering images will echo for a long time to come.
