Description: The Last Happy Occasion is the coming-of-age story of an American Jew and aspiring writer in the sixties and seventies. It tells how poetry taught him to read his own and other people's lives, and how those lives in turn shaped his understanding of certain poems.

"The Last Happy Occasion is a beautifully wrought account of childhood's end, affectionate. honest, often very funny, Alan Shapiro's memoir is strongest where most memoirs are weakest, in its portrayal of adulthood not as the sorry end of innocence but as awakening -- coming truly alive through family, knowledge, and vocation". -- Tobias Wolff
