📝Devil in the Grove Book Synopsis : Devil in the Grove, winner of the Pulitzer Prize for general nonfiction, is a gripping true story of racism, murder, rape, and the law. It brings to light one of the most dramatic court cases in American history, and offers a rare and revealing portrait of Thurgood Marshall that the world has never seen before. As Isabel Wilkerson’s The Warmth of Other Suns did for the story of America’s black migration, Gilbert King’s Devil in the Grove does for this great untold story of American legal history, a dangerous and uncertain case from the days immediately before Brown v. Board of Education in which the young civil rights attorney Marshall risked his life to defend a boy slated for the electric chair—saving him, against all odds, from being sentenced to death for a crime he did not commit.

📝American desperado Book Synopsis : Jon Roberts werd geboren als de telg van een Godfatherachtige maffiafamilie en was al op zijn zevende getuige van zijn eerste moord. Als jeugddelinquent en bendelid krikte hij de misdaadcijfers in New York flink op. Om een lange gevangenisstraf te ontlopen ging hij naar Vietnam, waar hij als lid van een elite-eenheid gerichte moorden uitvoerde. Later boekte hij in New York successen als promotor van nachtclubs. Toen de grond hem te heet onder de voeten werd, vluchtte hij naar de zon van Miami, waar hij logistieke zaken ging regelen voor het Medellín-kartel. Hij werkte voor de legendarische Pablo Escobar en was medeverantwoordelijk voor een aantal ingenieuze smokkelpraktijken. In zijn met traangas en mortieren beschermde stadsfort was ‘de Bebaarde Gringo’ nagenoeg onaantastbaar voor vijanden en voor de politie. Zijn leven nam een bizarre wending toen ook hooggeplaatste politici en de CIA gebruik gingen maken van zijn talent om zaakjes voor elkaar te krijgen.

📝Matterhorn Book Synopsis : Roman die niet alleen over de Vietnamoorlog gaat, maar over álle oorlogen; een getuigschrift van de verlossende kracht van literatuur Vietnam, 1969. Tweede luitenant Waino Mellas is eenentwintig jaar en net aangekomen op Matterhorn: een Amerikaanse vesting diep in de Vietnamese jungle. Vlak na zijn aankomst krijgt zijn eenheid het bevel in vijandig gebied op zoek te gaan naar een Noord- Vietnamese legerunit. Mellas en zijn mannen zullen ziekte, honger, bloedzuigers, tijgers en een vrijwel onzichtbare vijand moeten trot- seren, maar het zijn de raciale spanningen en de valse loyaliteiten die hen ten val dreigen te brengen. Matterhorn is niet alleen een rauw verslag over de waanzin van de oorlog maar tevens een krachtig en universeel verhaal over moed, vriendschap en opoffering. De pers over Matterhorn ‘Sublieme roman.’ **** de Volkskrant ‘Fenomenale debuutroman.’ ***** Het Parool ‘Een literair meesterwerk.’ Trouw ‘Een rauw verslag vanuit de waanzinnige oorlogsjungle.’ VPRO Gids

📝Beneath a Ruthless Sun Book Synopsis : From the author of the Pulitzer Prize-winning bestseller Devil in the Grove, a gripping story of sex, race, class, corruption, and the arc of justice twisted and bent straight again in the Florida citrus groves. In January 1957, which brings a rare killing freeze to Florida's orange groves, Blanche Bosanquet Knowles, the wealthy young wife of a citrus baron, is raped in her home while her husband is away. She says a "husky Negro" did it, and Lake County's infamously racist sheriff, Willis McCall, has no hesitation in rounding up a herd of suspects matching that description, alibis be damned. But within days they are released, and instead the crime is pinned on Jesse Daniels, a slight white nineteen-year-old with the mental capacity of a six-year-old. His uneducated parents' every attempt to secure him competent legal representation fails, and he is packed up north to the Florida State Hospital for the Insane in Chattahoochee, where he will languish for more than thirteen years. But facts are stubborn things, especially in the hands of a crusading journalist named Mabel Norris Reese, a heroine of Devil in the Grove. She recruits to the cause an inexperienced young lawyer named Richard Graham, who learns quickly from his fearless mentor. Together they dig deep into the case, winning unlikely allies, unearthing the shameful truths buried beneath its confounding contradictions, and slowly, relentlessly, bending the arc of history at long last back toward justice. Powerful, page-turning, and rippling with the tensions that still fracture our own times, Beneath a Ruthless Sun will be devoured by Gilbert King's many fans and will win him many, many new ones.

📝The Devil in Dover Book Synopsis : Local newspaper reporter Lauri Lebo was handed the story of a lifetime when the Dover (Pennsylvania) School Board adopted a measure to require its ninth-grade biology students to learn about intelligent design. In a case that recalled the famed 1925 Scopes “monkey” trial and made international headlines, eleven parents sued the school board. When the case wound up in federal court before a George W. Bush–appointed judge, Lebo had a front-row seat. Destined to become required reading for a generation of journalists, scientists, and science teachers, as well as for anyone concerned about the separation of church and state, The Devil in Dover is Lebo’s widely praised account of a perfect storm of religious intolerance, First Amendment violations, and an assault on American science education. Lebo skillfully probes the compelling background of the case, introducing us to the plaintiffs, the defendants, the lawyers, and a parade of witnesses, along with Judge John E. Jones, who would eventually condemn the school board’s decision as one of “breathtaking inanity.” With the antievolution battle having moved to the state level—and the recent passage of state legislation that protects the right of schools to teach alternatives to evolution—the story will continue to be relevant for years to come.

📝The Devil at Large Book Synopsis : Fearless, iconic poet, novelist, and feminist Erica Jong offers a fascinating in-depth appreciation of the controversial life and work of American literary giant Henry Miller Henry Miller (Tropic of Cancer) and Erica Jong (Fear of Flying) are true literary soul mates. Both authors have been, in equal measure, lauded for their creative genius and maligned for their frank treatment of human sexuality. So who better than Erica Jong to offer an expert appraisal and appreciation of Henry Miller, the man and his art? At once a critical study, a biography, a memoir of a remarkable friendship, and a celebration of the life and work of the author whom Erica Jong compares to Whitman, The Devil at Large explores the peaks and valleys of Miller’s storied writing career. It examines his tumultuous relationships—including his doomed marriage to June Mansfield and his lifelong tenuous bond with his mother—and confirms his standing as a creative genius. Jong, a renowned feminist, courageously answers critics who accuse her subject of degrading women in his fiction, suggesting instead that he sought to demystify them by means of the “violent verbal magic of his books.” With grace, wit, warmth, and intelligence, Jong brings readers close to the man and his writing. There has never been a more incisive and insightful analysis of this exceptional American master. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Erica Jong including rare photos and never-before-seen documents from the author’s personal collection.
