The Greatest Beer Run Ever (hardcover)
Soon to be a motion picture, a wildly entertaining, feel-good memoir of an Irish-American New Yorker and former U.S. marine who embarked on a courageous, hare-brained scheme to deliver beer to his pals serving Vietnam in the late 1960s.
The Nickel Boys (paperback)
In this Pulitzer Prize-winning novel, Colson Whitehead brilliantly dramatizes a strand of American history. When Elwood Curtis, a black boy growing up in 1960s Tallahassee, is unfairly sentenced to a juvenile reformatory called the Nickel Academy (a real school that operated for 111 years), he finds himself trapped. Elwood’s only salvation is his friendship with fellow “delinquent” Turner, which deepens as they figure out together how to survive, scheme, and avoid trouble. The final twist at the end will make you want to read it over again.
November Road (paperback)
Set against the assassination of JFK, this poignant and evocative crime novel centers on a desperate cat-and-mouse chase across 1960s America—a story of unexpected connections, daring possibilities, and the hope of second chances.
