Bless Me, Ultima

Is the way Antonio grows up similar to the way you grew up? Why or why not?

Antonio's childhood was far different than my own. The 1940's was a different time and place, the formality of the Catholic church and the expectation of a younger son to devote his life to the priesthood existed in a far different world than our own. The novel was also set during WWII..... I have never experienced war first hand...... I've never had a brother or and uncle go off to battle and feared they wouldn't return. Nor did I grow up among conflicting cultures and religions. I think my life has been a bit more cut and dry......
