Renewed attention today to a demand for reparations for Black people in this country invites us to turn our attention to the historical context from which that demand originates. Repair takes up that invitation, offering a detailed account of the circumstances that surrounded the emancipation of enslaved African Americans in two unique contexts, the Sea Islands of South Carolina and Davis Bend, Jefferson Davis’ former plantation outside Vicksburg, Mississippi. Repair makes the case for racial reparations in the United States by returning to a time at the end of slavery when many formerly enslaved people were provided land explicitly as a form of reparation, yet after President Abraham Lincoln was assassinated that land was stolen back from freed people and given to former slave owners. Thus begins a complicated and volatile fight for justice for Black Americans who have had to demand retribution for the crime of slavery in the US.

An “intelligent and infectiously enthusiastic” biography of the Celtic queen and an analysis of her impact on British and feminist history ( The Sunday Times ). Boudica has been mythologized as the woman who dared to take on the Romans to avenge her daughters, her tribe, and her enslaved country. Her immortality rests on the fact that she almost drove the Romans out of Britain, and her legend has become the reference point for any British woman in power, from Elizabeth I to Margaret Thatcher. As Boudica has become well known as an icon of female leadership and strength, the true story of her revolt against the Roman Empire has only become more distant until now. Combining new research and recent archaeological discoveries, Vanessa Collingridge has written a major new biography on this shadowy and often misunderstood figure of ancient history. Boudica provides a detailed history of the Celtomania that has adopted Boudica as its earliest hero, and the nationalist and feminist causes that have also tried to claim her as their own. While tracking the origins and impact of the various versions of the Boudica legend, Collingridge unearths a historical woman who is far subtler but every bit as fascinating as the myths associated with her name. “Deeply researched and powerfully explosive.” — Saga Magazine “A compelling tale.” — Daily Mail
“A remarkable memoir of a British lad’s salad days flying bombers against the Nazis and then repeatedly escaping their prison camps” ( Kirkus Reviews ). The product of a lifetime’s reflection, The Last Escaper is Peter Tunstall’s unforgettable memoir of his days in the British Royal Air Force and as one of the most celebrated British POWs of World War II. Tunstall was an infamous tormentor of his German captors. Dubbed the “cooler king” on account of his long spells in solitary, he once dropped a water “bomb” directly in the lap of a high-ranking German officer. He also devised an ingenious method for smuggling coded messages back to London. But above all he was a highly skilled pilot, loyal friend, and trusted colleague. Without false pride or bitterness, Tunstall recounts the hijinks of training to be a pilot, terrifying bombing raids, and elaborate escape attempts at once hilarious and deadly serious—all part of a poignant and human war story superbly told by a natural raconteur. The Last Escaper is a captivating final testament by the “last man standing” from the Greatest Generation. “Right up there with Stalag 17 and The Great Escape .” — New York Post “The historical account of behind-the-scenes drama makes this a valuable addition to the period literature.” — Publishers Weekly “The stark reality of war is ever present in his detailed accounting of life as a prisoner of war. We are taken through the highs and lows of not only each failed attempt but the psychological effects of imprisonment on himself, others in the camps and ultimately how it changed each person involved.” — Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
“A dazzling story by a fine writer. Fintan Dunne is a memorable hero who you want to meet again and again” (James Patterson). Judge Joe Crater’s disappearance in 1930 spawned countless conspiracy theories and captured the imagination of a nation caught in the grip of The Depression. Twenty-five years later, Fintan Dunne, the detective encountered in Quinn’s novel Hour of the Cat , recently retired and bored, answers a summons to New York where he is asked to solve the old case for a newspaper magnate only interested in making a profit from the story. Peter Quinn once again has written a compelling blend of history and fiction that is simply unputdownable. “In The Man Who Never Returned, Peter Quinn shapes a tantalizing tale around the enduring mystery of Judge Joseph Force Crater, whose disappearance remains a major mystery . . . This is noir fiction at its finest.” —William Kennedy, Pulitzer Prize–winning author of Ironweed “A masterful and evocative tale, set in a beautifully rendered 1950s New York, it combines true crime with vivid imagining. This is that rare book: A first-rate thriller that seamlessly weaves together page-turning narrative with richly detailed characters whose motivations—complex; suspect, hidden—always ring true.” —Thomas Kelly, author of A Testament of Devotion “Peter Quinn brings wit, panache and a deep knowledge of the Big Apple to his latest Fintan Dunne novel . . . A taut thriller.” —T. J. English, New York Times –bestselling author of Whitey’s Payback “An utterly compelling story . . . Gripping from the first page to the last, Peter Quinn creates a unique and utterly believable world, part history, part fiction.” —Gabriel Byrne, Golden Globe Award–winning actor
From a New York Times –bestselling author, a “smart; funny” novel about a New Jersey man obsessed with the legendary singer ( The Washington Post ). “Kashner’s hilarious debut novel reviews the life of a down-on-his-luck Hoboken, N.J., window-shade salesman through a series of heart-wrenching letters he writes to his idol, Frank Sinatra. Like the Chairman of the Board, ‘Finkie’ Finklestein grows up in a poor ethnic Hoboken neighborhood and prospers during the postwar American boom. He buys a house in Fort Lee once owned by Buddy Hackett and names his daughter Nancy Ava, after Frank’s first two wives. Finkie mimics the swinging sophistication of the Rat Pack, who, he vainly hopes, will one day draft him into active service . . . With rapid-fire wit, Kashner demonstrates his detailed knowledge of pop culture as Finkie follows Sinatra’s movies and marriages, his story climaxing at the 1971 farewell concert . . . Kashner manages to dissect a fan’s obsession with poignant comedy, and he captures a New Jersey accent with a sure ear . . . a sparkling literary talent.” — Publishers Weekly Named a Best Book of the Year by both the Los Angeles Times and the Washington Post , Sinatraland is an “uncommonly original and engaging” character study as well as a thought-provoking look at celebrity culture ( The Washington Post ). “Smart; humorous, original . . . deftly explores the peculiarly tragic aspects of an obsession with a celebrity.” —Helen Schulman, New York Times –bestselling author of This Beautiful Life “Quirky . . . intelligent . . . very funny.” — The Boston Globe
