Stop Time by Frank Conroy

This memoir captures the essence of growing up in America during the mid-20th century, weaving together the poignant, often painful experiences of the author's youth. Through a series of vividly recounted episodes, the narrative explores themes of isolation, the search for identity, and the struggle to find coherence in a fragmented world. The author's journey from a troubled childhood through to adulthood is rendered with acute sensitivity and introspection, offering a deeply personal yet universally resonant exploration of the passage of time and the process of self-discovery.
