Well Done, New York Times Best Sellers!

Well Done, New York Times Best Sellers!

This is the time of year that Talia and I are of the busier of the busy bees (maybe that's why we're buzzing so much lately??) and we end up missing some of the totally rad week-to-week Macmillan excitement.

So when Talia paused for 1/23 of a second to sip her coffee this morning and glanced at The New York Times Book Review Best Sellers list for May 27, she did a double-take and then called me in to talk about how many of our awesome books are on the list.

Editor's Choice

FARTHER AWAY by Jonathan Franzen

"The theme of human struggle against the pulls of solipsism and narcissism illuminates every page of the novelist’s essays."

OBLIVION by Héctor Abad. Translated by Anne McLean and Rosalind Harvey.

"Abad’s highly personal coming-of-age story is also a sociopolitical portrait of Colombia."

KILLING LINCOLN and Bringing History to Life

KILLING LINCOLN and Bringing History to Life

Bill O'Reilly's thrilling narrative history, KILLING LINCOLN, brings the assassination of our 16th president into vivid clarity.

 

In the spring of 1865, the bloody saga of America's Civil War finally comes to an end. Former Confederates are reintegrating into American society, but one man and his band of murderous accomplices are not appeased.

In the midst of the patriotic celebrations in Washington D.C., John Wilkes Booth—-charismatic ladies' man and impenitent racist—-murders Abraham Lincoln at Ford's Theatre. 

A furious manhunt ensues and Booth immediately becomes the country's most wanted fugitive. Lafayette C. Baker, a smart but shifty New York detective and former Union spy, unravels the string of clues leading to Booth, while federal forces track his accomplices. The thrilling chase ends in a fiery shootout and a series of court-ordered executions—including that of the first woman ever executed by the U.S. government. 

Featuring some of history's most remarkable figures, vivid detail, and page-turning action, Killing Lincoln is history that reads like a thriller.

 

MSNBC has posted an excerpt from the book on their site. Read the full excerpt here: http://today.msnbc.msn.com/id/44976606.
