"Motherly Business" and the Moves to Manhood.
Moore, John Noell
ALAN Review, v22 n1 p51-55 Fall 1994
Discusses three novels that focus on the mother/son relationship: Bruce Books'"The Moves Make the Man," Chris Crutcher's "Stotan!" and Walter Dean Myers'"Fallen Angels." Notes that all three deal with forms of combat, both physical and mental, with competition, and with a struggle to survive--a struggle that each novelist turns into a metaphor for living. (RS)
