Author Spotlight: Rick Atkinson

Rick Atkinson is the bestselling, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of the Liberation Trilogy, and now he turns his intellectual eye to a new era: the American Revolution.

THE BRITISH ARE COMING: The War for America, Lexington to Princeton, 1775-1777 (The Revolution Trilogy, Volume 1) recounts the first twenty-one months of America’s violent war for independence, from the battles at Lexington and Concord in spring 1775 to those at Trenton and Princeton in winter 1777.

Full of riveting details and untold stories, THE BRITISH ARE COMING is a tale of heroes and knaves, of sacrifice and blunder, of redemption and profound suffering. Rick Atkinson has given stirring new life to the first act of our country’s creation drama.

Praise for THE BRITISH ARE COMING:

“Aided by fine and numerous maps, this is superb military and diplomatic history and represents storytelling on a grand scale.”–Booklist, starred review

We’re Seeing Stars!

Holy starred reviews, Batman! Check out these forthcoming titles that earned two starred reviews!

THE GUEST BOOK by Sarah Blake

“This novel sets out to be more than a juicy family saga—it aims to depict the moral evolution of a part of American society. Its convincing characters and muscular narrative succeed on both counts.”–Kirkus Reviews, starred review

“Blake deftly interrogates the many shades of prejudice and ‘the ordinary, everyday wickedness of turning away.’ Blake’s brilliant and ravishing novel promises to hit big”–Booklist, starred review

LOTHARINGIA: A Personal History of Europe’s Lost Country by Simon Winder

“Winder highlights the contrasts between readers’ modern perspectives and those of the Lotharingians and their peers with a deft combination of personal observation, historical anecdotes, and humorously straightforward summaries of complex military, dynastic, and ideological conflicts. This work is highly recommended for fans of European and world history.”–Booklist, starred review
