Tom Buzby is thirteen years old and lives in Chatham. Set in the year that real newspaper headlines told of the rise of Reagan and North America's hard turn to the right, 1979 is a novel of innocence not so much lost as smashed, and experience gained the hard way, the kind that brands memories forever and permanently changes lives.
