Alexander Hamilton Book Review *Ron Chernow*...

Jul 4, 2016 by

  In the first full-length biography of Alexander Hamilton in decades, Ron Chernow tells the riveting story of a man who overcame all odds to shape, inspire, and scandalize the newborn America. According to historian Joseph Ellis, Alexander Hamilton is “a robust full-length portrait, in my view the best ever written, of the most brilliant, charismatic and dangerous founder of them all.” Few figures in American history have been more hotly debated or more grossly misunderstood than Alexander Hamilton. Chernow’s biography gives Hamilton his due and sets the record straight, deftly illustrating that the political and economic greatness of today’s America is the result of Hamilton’s countless sacrifices to champion ideas that were often wildly disputed during his time. “To repudiate his legacy,” Chernow writes, “is, in many ways, to repudiate the modern world.”...

Author Guest Post: Sleeping Beauty Literary Inspirations By Louisa Bacio...

Jul 1, 2016 by

How many versions of fairy tales do you know? Many people are most familiar with the watered-down Disney versions. The originals were so much more violent. Birds pecked out the eyes of Cinderella’s evil stepsisters, and Little Red was cut out of the wolf’s belly. In college, I took classes on fairy tales and women’s literature, and somewhere along the way, the literary inspiration exploded into the making of Awake: Unsleeping Beauty. What happens when the princess who never sleeps meets the princess who’s cursed to sleep? The Princess and the Pea fights the need for rest as she embarks upon the rescue of Sleeping Beauty. When I first started writing Awake, I focused on the adventure – that quest of waking the sleeping princess. Soon, though, I realized that there was so much...

The Body Reader Book Review *Anne Frasier*...

Jun 30, 2016 by

    For three years, Detective Jude Fontaine was kept from the outside world. Held in an underground cell, her only contact was with her sadistic captor, and reading his face was her entire existence. Learning his every line, every movement, and every flicker of thought is what kept her alive. After her experience with isolation and torture, she is left with a fierce desire for justice—and a heightened ability to interpret the body language of both the living and the dead. Despite colleagues’ doubts about her mental state, she resumes her role at Homicide. Her new partner, Detective Uriah Ashby, doesn’t trust her sanity, and he has a story of his own he’d rather keep hidden. But a killer is on the loose, murdering young women, so the detectives have no choice: they...

Then He Kissed Me Book Review *Laura Trentham*...

Jun 29, 2016 by

    As a boy, Nash Hawthorne spent countless afternoons on the Louisiana side of Cottonbloom with Tally Fournette, wading in the river, peeling oranges and catching frogs.

It was a short distance as the crow flies, but it swept him into a whole new world… After Nash left, Tally managed to struggle through her own losses without him.
