Original Synopsis

"The Last Ballad has a total of 400 pages which are papers from writer 'Wiley Cash'. Inspired by actual events, The Last Ballad is a moving tale of courage in the face of oppression, with all the emotional power of Cold Mountain and The Secret Scripture 'A powerful book that speaks to contemporary concerns through historical injustice. Cash vividly blends the archival with the imaginative.' New York Times Book Review For twenty-eight-year-old Ella May Wiggins life is tough. Her no-good husband, John, has run off again, and she must keep her four young children alive with the only work she can find, the night shift at American Mill No. 2 in Bessemer City, North Carolina When union leaflets begin circulating, Ella May has a taste of hope, a yearning for the better life the organizers promise. But the mill owners, backed by other nefarious forces, claim the union is nothing but a front for the Bolshevik menace sweeping across Europe. To maintain their control, the owners will use every means in their power, including bloodshed, to prevent workers from banding together. Seventy-five years later, Ella May's daughter Lilly, now an elderly woman, tells her nephew about his grandmother and the events that transformed their family forever. Paying tribute to the thousands of heroic women and men who risked their lives to win basic rights for all workers, The Last Ballad is lyrical, heartbreaking and haunting, and the novel which confirms Wiley Cash's place among America's finest writers. 2018-01-02 time of publication of the book, [-Faber & Faber-]"

The Last Novel

Original Synopsis

"The Last Novel has a total of 220 pages which are papers from writer 'David Markson'. In recent novels, which have been called “hypnotic,” “stunning,” and “exhilarating,” David Markson has created his own personal genre. In this new work, The Last Novel, an elderly author (referred to only as “Novelist”) announces that since this will be his final effort, he has “carte blanche to do anything he damned well pleases.” Pressed by solitude and age, Novelist's preoccupations inevitably turn to the stories of other artists — their genius, their lack of recognition, and their deaths. Keeping his personal history out of the story as much as possible, Novelist creates an incantatory stream of fascinating triumphs and failures from the lives of famous and not-so-famous painters, writers, musicians, sports figures, and scientists. As Novelist moves through his last years, a minimalist self-portrait emerges, becoming an intricate masterpiece from David Markson's astonishing imagination. Through these startling, sometimes comic, but often tragic anecdotes we unexpectedly discern the entire shape of a man's life. 2007-05-10 time of publication of the book, [-Counterpoint-]"

The Last Kind Words Saloon

Original Synopsis

"The Last Kind Words Saloon has a total of 224 pages which are papers from writer 'Larry McMurtry'. The triumphant return of Larry McMurtry with this ballad in prose: his heartfelt tribute to a bygone era of the American West. Larry McMurtry has done more than any other living writer to shape our literary imagination of the American West. With The Last Kind Words Saloon, he returns to the vivid and unsparing portrait of the nineteenth-century and cowboy lifestyle made so memorable in his classic Lonesome Dove. Evoking the greatest characters and legends of the Old Wild West, McMurtry tells the story of the closing of the American frontier through the travails of two of its most immortal figures: Wyatt Earp and Doc Holliday. Long Grass, Texas. Once hailed as heroes for their days of subduing drunks in Abilene and Dodge - more often with a mean look than a pistol - the taciturn Wyatt now idles away his time between bottles, while the dentist-turned-gunslinger Doc is more adept at poker than extracting teeth. With the buffalo herds gone, the Comanche defeated, and vast swaths of the Great Plains enclosed by cattle ranches, Wyatt and Doc live on, even as the storied West that forged their myths disappears. McMurtry traces the rich and varied friendship of the heroic pair from the town of Long Grass to Buffalo Bill's Wild West Show in Denver, then to Mobetie, Texas, and finally to Tombstone, Arizona, culminating with the famed gunfight at the O.K. Corral, rendered here in McMurtry's stark and peerless prose. As harsh and beautiful, and as brutal and captivating as the open range it depicts, The Last Kind Words Saloon celebrates the genius of one of the most original American writers. 2015-02-12 time of publication of the book, [-Pan Macmillan-]"

Original Synopsis

"Runway (A Love, California Series Novel, Book 3) has a total of 286 pages which are papers from writer 'Jan Moran'. "An engrossing view into the world of 'beautiful people.'" - New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Melissa Foster After Fianna Fitzgerald's debut runway showing of her fashion designs, a walk on the Malibu beach with reclusive rock star Niall Finley nearly claims their lives when they get caught in high tides. Will the bond they form in those critical moments be enough to last a lifetime? When Fianna left Ireland for America to follow her dream of becoming a fashion designer, she was determined to leave her family's ancient past behind and start fresh in Beverly Hills. Fianna never imagined that her goal would place her, and those who work for her, in jeopardy. From the fashion runways of Los Angeles to London, someone is trying to sabotage her debut season. As Fianna struggles between two vastly different worlds, her troubles mount, though her friends lend their support in her darkest hours. Is the terror linked to her family's ancient feudal past, or something else? Furthermore, can she leave Ireland with her heart intact, or will she lose it to only man she's ever loved? Runway is the third book in the series (but can be read as a stand-alone novel). Follow a group of smart, stylish, entrepreneurial friends as they navigate the turbulences of modern life and love. Set in Beverly Hills with action flung across the globe, this engaging series features gutsy, determined best friends, and how they manage to live the lives of their dreams. AUTHOR INTERVIEW Q – What's interesting about this contemporary series? A – The Love, California series is a blend of women's contemporary fiction and romance with strong female leads, close girlfriend friendships, and romantic relationships. The single women in the Love, California series are stylish, creative, and smart, but like any of us, they sometimes make mistakes. I really enjoy helping them overcome their challenges. Q – Why should readers choose the Love, California series? A – Because they're fun, vicarious stories ripped from the glamorous world of beauty, yet infused with deep friendships and romantic relationships. My award-winning books have reached the top ten bestseller list in prestigious Rizzoli Bookstore, and as high as #14 on the Amazon Top 100 List for paid books. And I'm thrilled that my historical romances, Scent of Triumph and The Winemakers, are published by St. Martin's Press, a leading New York publisher. Q – And what kind of books do you like to read? A – I read widely across genres. I love Barbara Taylor Bradford family sagas series, Lauren Willig historical fiction books, Melissa Foster romance novel series, Elizabeth Adler epic sagas, Anita Hughes contemporary fiction novels, Danielle Steel strong female leads, Michelle Gable Paris novels, Marie Force romance best sellers, and Candace Bushnell contemporary fiction bestsellers.
