Description

Critically acclaimed writer William Kennedy brings his native city to literary life again in Chango’s Beads and Two-Tone Shoes, an in-depth, absorbing novel set in Albany, NY during the civil rights movement and during the civil unrest in 1950’s Cuba.

Thomas Mallon sets his latest compelling historical novel in Washington, DC with Watergate, an intriguing version of a nation’s scandal. The Los Angeles Times described his work as “some of the most lucid prose in contemporary American literature.”
