Book Description

Little Men follows the life of Jo Bhaer and the students who live and learn at the Plumfield School that she runs with her husband, Professor Bhaer. The mischievous children, whom she loves and cares for as her own, learn valuable lessons as they grow to adulthood. Each student has his or her own struggles: Nat lies; Demi, is so naïve that he finds it hard to live in the real world; Emil has a bad temper; Dan is rebellious and rude; Tommy is careless; Annie is too rambunctious; and Daisy is too prim. They all learn to cope with their faults as they grow into young men and women.

5.0 out of 5 stars Louisa May Alcott He's Not! 21 Jun. 2001
By Arch Llewellyn - Published on
Imagine Armistead Maupin tied up in latex and injected with sodium pentathol and you're halfway to the spirit of "Little Men." Kevin Killian is one of San Francisco's best experimental writers, and in these 11 short shorts he slips a magnet under nearly every moral compass with a chatty, diamond-sharp prose that reminded me somehow of Raymond Chandler--pulpy on the surface but with murderous depths below. "Chain of Fools" is one of the most bizarre and oddly moving accounts of growing up Catholic you'll ever read, while "Santa" and "Who Is Kevin Killian?" cover some dark psychological territory with the unblinking art of a Baudelaire (but a Baudelaire with cable and a thirst for Tab). If you like Kathy Acker or Dennis Cooper--or hey, even Louisa May Alcott--then Killian's your man. This book deserves to be more widely read and reviewed, so come on out all you K.K. fans and second this emotion!
