The Great Depression was a devastating historical event that affected everyone around the world. No one was spared as people of wealth plunged into the depths of real poverty, experienced homelessness and hunger in the hard times and unrelieved combat that lasted for years. Author John I. Brooks shares his memories as a child growing up during the Depression where many experienced No Fixed Address.
No Fixed Address is a memoir of the Depression, World War II and the events that mark the beginning of the nation’s postwar transformation. The author takes the reader on a journey through those times in Chicago, Southern California and New York City. His fascinating true account focuses on the struggles and joys of ordinary families in an extraordinary time. But always in the background are the massive changes taking place in the life and culture of Americans as their old world vanished and a new one was born. These seismic shifts continue to influence our lives today.
