by Perry Lentz — The riveting narrative of a Confederate provocateur in 1863 Manhattan who changes the course and outcome of the War Between the States. A tale of personal disintegration foretelling that of a nation, Perish From The Earth creates a luminous flicker-show of Manhattan street battles and the lives of mobs — the product of political chicanery, public corruption, immigrant misery, the gangs of New York peopled with vivid historical characterizations. John Patrick Callahan’s first-hand account of the Great New-York Rebellion of 1863 is flanked by commentary from a prominent military historian, ca. 1880, as this volume is published to a fractured nation seeking to fight itself back together in 1880. A fine layered fiction and a great read, this sweeping novel will become one of your all-time favorites.
by P.F. Kluge — Who would want to kill a college? As a series of grisly murders unfolds at a small liberal arts school, that question slowly climbs the stairs. “Like some of my favorite movies,” wrote director Martin Scorcese, “Final Exam uses a classic genre and twists it into something new and compelling and memorable.”
Verse translation by Michael Barich — This 1st-century AD Latin version of the earlier Greek epic features exotic lands, wondrous monsters and a sea voyage over swells of young love. Valerius Flaccus lent sharp Roman refinements and erotic passion to the tale, which are skillfully sustained in this careful and appealing modern translation in English verse.
by Bruce Haywood — A penetrating look at the present state and future prospects of liberal arts education in America, as well as a fascinating chronicle of one man’s life in higher education.
by Galbraith Crump — This beautiful and moving memoir is deceptively simple. It weaves together memories, scenes, characters in a powerful warp and weft across decades. At the center is the enchanting figure of Joan, a woman who ignites each scene just as she provided light and life for her large and far-flung family. Galbraith Crump’s meditations on Joan and their life together are vivid and particular to be sure and breathtakingly powerful but they also evoke larger considerations of meaning and mortality that will touch any reader. — David H.
