Early critical acclaim from Pulitzer Prize-winning scholars and
best-selling authors Studs Terkel, Jonathan Kozol, Robert Coles,
Howard Zinn, John Ferling and Winston Groom: "Last Refuge of
Scoundrels" is the bottom-up story of the American Revolution
brought to life vividly, compellingly, suggestively. It's a story
that gives America its past in a manner worthy of comparison to
Tolstoy's effort to understand and render history and does so in a
manner that's rich, rambunctious, exploding with vitality and
bubbling with wild humor. A delightfully irreverent look at the
Revolution, it tells the story of John Lawrence a naive young
merchant's son who finds love and his life's purpose in Deborah
Simpson, a spy working in collusion with George Washington to lead
An unsung army of ordinary Americans against the self-interested
Founding Fathers as much as the bumbling Brits. "Last Refuge of
Scoundrels" weaves meticulous research and fantastical fable into a
poetic tale that's at once a rollicking romp, a haunting love story
and a revisionist historical epic.
