Streetchild: An Unpaved Passage
"Hard luck memoirs have grown extra cheap in recent years, partly due to the celebration of bogus ones. Justin Reed Early's StreetChild: An Unpaved Passage is no such thing." (Huston)
- SAN FRANCISCO BAY GUARDIAN
In the 1980’s, the number of child runaways on the streets of Seattle was at epidemic proportions. The problem inspired the classic and riveting documentary, “STREETWISE”, which was nominated for an Academy Award in 1984.
Author Justin Reed Early, a credited participant of the documentary and now successful Los Angeles resident, tells the story of how he survived the arduous streets. We grow with this homeless youth as he relives a harrowing journey into adulthood. Justin introduces us to the characters and dramas of his younger years bringing new life to his street family as many of their lives have been silenced by AIDS, suicide and serial killers (the Green River killer).
Join this tragic yet magical journey as Justin honors childhood heroes, pays tribute to many lost friends and learns of forgiveness when the now middle aged Justin is thrust into a life defining experience that will change his world – forever.
