Review by Steven Robert Allen
The Children's War
Novels about World War II are a dime a dozen. Charlesworth avoids treading on familiar literary ground by focusing on intricate personal relationships forged by a communist Jew, his estranged wife and their 13-year-old daughter, Ilse, who is sent to an uncle in Morocco to escape the clutches of the Nazis.
The Warlord's Son
A burned out journalist gets a dangerous assignment covering the post 9-11 war in Afghanistan in Fesperman's gripping, timely new thriller. Advance readers have said The Warlord's Son ranks right up there with Fesperman's other critically acclaimed novels, all of which are set in war-ravaged regions around the globe.
Jimbo in Purgatory
Venerable comic legend Gary Panter presents a new graphic novel starring his iconic punk hero, Jimbo, who attempts to survive a journey through an infernal alternate world populated by the likes of Frank Zappa and Yoko Ono. Wicked, weird, immaculately illustrated stuff.
Good Morning Midnight
Hill's dazzling new installment in his popular mystery series starring the dynamic detective duo, Peter Pascoe and Andy Dalziel, has the boys cracking open a book of Dickinson poems in an attempt to solve the riddle surrounding an apparent suicide. This one should appeal to both old fans and new.
