When you read this novel about April 19, 1775,  you will see the British redcoats marching in a  solid column through your town. Your hands will be  sweating and you will shake a little as you grip your  musket because never have you shot with the aim of  killing a man. But you will shoot, and shoot again  and again while your shoulder aches from your  musket's kick and the tight, disciplined red column  bleeds and wavers and breaks and you begin to shout  at the top of your lungs because you are there, at  the birth of freedom -- you're a veteran of the  Battle of Lexington, and you've helped whip the  King's best soldiers...

Born to enormous wealth and social standing, Barbara Lavette leaves her sumptuous home on San Francisco's Nob Hill to lead a life of adventure that takes her from the depression to the darkest days of World War II.

Troubled by the conflicts of her dual inheritance and scornful of her mother's social world, Barbara sets out to build her own life in her own way, leading her to a Europe on the brink of Nazi terror. Along the way she falls deeply in love with a man of ardent passions and loyalties who risks his life to preserve the memories of the Jews who died in the concentration camps. How they survive a heartless tragedy set on destroying them is the surprise conclusion of this relentless, page turning novel.

The name "Tito" has become legendary in the annals of our common struggle against Hitlerism. Yet less is known about him today than most men of equal renown. Howard Fast, that distinguished American author of "Citizen Tom Paine" fame, made a careful study of the facts and wrote this incredible account of a man and a people who refused to understand the meaning of the word "defeat."

Spartacus (Paperback, New Ed): Howard Fast Spartacus (Paperback, New Ed)
Howard Fast; Introduction by Howard Fast
R755 Discovery Miles 7 550 Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

Spartacus, a fictionalization of a slave revolt in ancient Rome in 71 B.C., is well known today partly because of the 1960 movie starring Kirk Douglas and Laurence Olivier. It was originally published in 1951 by the author himself, after being turned down by every mainstream publisher of the day because of Fast's blacklisting for his Communist Party sympathies. The story of Spartacus, born a slave, trained as a gladiator, who led a slave revolt that was eventually put down by Crassus, was immensely popular, has sold millions of copies, and has gone through nearly a hundred editions. The appearance of this title in the North Castle series brings back into print a book that many regard as a classic, and is enhanced with a new Introduction by the author.

"She'll stand up for her family, no matter the cost"

Former socialite Barbara Lavette is unconcerned about the gossip that surrounds her new marriage. However, her husband Bernie, a poor mechanic whom she met in the midst of World War II, is willing to do anything to prove his worth to her as well as the society that shuns him.

Barbara will support her husband in any way she can, but when she becomes the victim of an attack by the Congressional Committee on Un-American Activities, she is forced to stand trial. Caught in a Communist witch hunt, Barbara must do whatever it takes to defend her values, clear her name, and find a way to reunite her family.

The third book in Howard Fast's epic family saga, "The Establishment "follows the Lavette family as they attempt to persevere in a nation consumed with fear during the tumultuous period following World War II.

"Praise for The Immigrants series: "

"-New York Times"

"There hasn't been a novel in years that can do a job on readers' emotions that the last fifty pages of "The Immigrants "does."
"-Los Angeles Times"

"Emotional, exciting, and entertaining."
"-Philadelphia Inquirer"

R444 R374 Discovery Miles 3 740 Save R70 (16%) Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

Masao Masuto is a Nisei detective on the Beverly Hills police force- a cultured stranger in an even stranger land of traffic-clogged freeways, artery-clogging fast food... and brutal murders. In The Case of the Sliding Pool, the collapse of a swimming pool exposes the skeleton of a man, buried in the pool's foundation for thirty years. Determined to learn the identities of both the victim and his killer, Masuto finds himself in a game of wits with a brilliant murderer. In The Case of The Kidnapped Angel, Hollywood sex goddess Angel Barton has been kidnapped. Although Angel returns home unharmed a short time later, her husband, Mike- who left to pay her ransom- is not so lucky. Secking the reasons for Barton's death, Masuto is soon drawn into a complex world of secret passions, bewildering illusions... and increasingly savage murders.

Masao Masuto is a Nisei detective on the Beverly Hills police force -- a cultured stranger in an even stranger land of traffic-clogged freeways, artery-clogging fast food...and brutal murders. Here, collected for the first time, are the two adventures that launched the popular crime-fiction series created by Howard Fast: In Samantha, a Hollywood film producer has been murdered -- the first in a series of violent deaths perpetrated by a killer calling herself "Samantha." Masuto must race the clock to stop her before more blood is shed. In The Case of the One-Penny Orange, a noted stamp dealer and his assistant are murdered, and the one clue that could bring a killer to justice is an 1847 postage stamp from the island of Mauritius -- one of the rarest, most famous stamps in the world.

Best Short Stories of Theodore Dreiser (Paperback, New edition): Theodore Dreiser, Howard Fast Best Short Stories of Theodore Dreiser (Paperback, New edition)
Theodore Dreiser, Howard Fast
R385 R327 Discovery Miles 3 270 Save R58 (15%) Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

This extraordinary collection of short stories reminds us how great a talent Dreiser was. A giant among American writers, he fought throughout his career to capture life in realistic terms. In his stories as well as his celebrated novels, he sought to uncover the problems of common Americans at the turn of the century-their struggles with society and their dreams of power and wealth against a backdrop of threatening poverty. "Dreiser has no peer in the American short story....As fine as his novels are, they do not attain the artistic wholeness of his short tales. Among the moderns, there is almost no one capable of writing tales like these. The best of today is pallid and non-human when compared with Dreiser's compassionate searchings."-from the Introduction by Howard Fast.
