Inhaltsangabe: Eleven Stories High is a memoir of a middle-class New York childhood, the perceptions of a girl growing up in a housing project that she deemed a "utopia of the fifties." The story follows the process of memory, rather than the conventions of chronology, and explores the concept of "home," how a place like Stuyvesant Town--impersonal, symmetrical, utilitarian--shapes a childhood.

This poignant memoir of life in Stuyvesant Town, a New York City housing project, describes growing up in what the author deems a "utopia of the fifties." Corinne Demas evokes in convincing detail the friendships, foibles, and fantasies of a girl's coming of age in a "vertical" neighborhood of pets, games, elevator rides, and family life. She follows the process of memory, rather than the conventions of chronology, to take us on a vivid journey of the 1950's and 60's America of Halloween costumes, roller skating, the new T.V. culture, high school dances, and music lessons. She lovingly tells of her father--an unconventional dentist--and her mother, both a traditional housewife and a high school biology teacher.

From the Inside Flap: "A marvelous memoir I loved every word.... Stuyvesant Town, with its unexpected charm is as strong a character as any I've encountered in personal narrative. Demas's portrait of her mother is exquisite."-- Anita Shreve, author of The Pilot’s Wife: A Novel

"Corinne Demas is a wonderful storyteller, and her ability to render anecdotes about times and places gone by -- to conjure up the tastes and smells and details of a vanished world -- is quite remarkable. She has managed to give us a piece of urban history set within the framework of her own family history. She has also given us a stunningly detailed portrait of a most specific urban culture within a narrative that is itself a compelling story of one young woman's coming-of-age. "Demas’s evocation of the specifics of childhood games, of family rituals, of the new TV culture, of the significance of the automobile, of the way we worked and played and learned, and of the ways in which the urban culture yearned to become a suburban culture, is, quite simply, superb. It is a most tenderly wrought book, full of affection for its world -- whether it tells of shopping rituals or dating rituals, dentistry or an all-girls school of the 50s." --Jay Nuegeboren, author of Imagining Robert: My Brother, Madness, and Survival: A Memoir

"Eleven Stones High is a marvelously sensible, observant, honest, and often amusing portrait of a very particular place that manages at the same time to conjure the experiences of many contented children growing up in many kinds of places. Demas has found a perfect way to divide up her ostensible subjects -- elevators, stores, games, school -- to give us a very precise picture of her life in a vertical neighborhood, yet each opens out, by virtue of the author's ingeniousness and candidness, into a much larger consideration of family, community, city. At the same time, she brings her family to us with remarkable clarity, This is a sociologically dead-on representation of mid-century urban life that is neither Leave it to Beaver nor Ozzie and Harriet in its simplifications not Manchild in the Promised Land in its accusatory grimness."-- Rosellen Brown, author of Before and After

"A very meticulous writer, steady and believable. Her powers of recall are extraordinary. I regard this as an important record of contemporary life, as well as a most interesting coming-of-age memoir."--Shirley Abbott, author of Womenfolks: Growing Up Down South

"This is an irresistible memoir. The book swarms with the sort of everyday detail that not only makes a life memorable but that asks the reader to savor rather than reject it. I smiled on every page."--Anne Bernays, author of Professor Romeo

"Combines a startling immediacy of presentation with the inevitable distancing of retrospection.... Eleven Stories High is richly layered, fondly written and true in the necessary way of art."--Sven Birkerts, author of Readings
