Excerpt from The Strife of the Sea The day was beautiful and the sunshine was hot. The warm current of the Gulf flowed silently now with the gentle southwest wind, and the white sails of the spongers from Havana and Key West began to dot the horizon. Here and there a large barracouta or albicore would dart like a streak of shimmering silver through the liquid, and the old man would cast his glance in the direction of the vanishing point with a ready pinion to sweep headlong at the mullet or sailor's-choice which were being pursued.

Several times it happened. Along in the afternoon a negro, sitting in a sunny corner Of the steerage deck, held nevertheless the very center Of the stage for several minutes with a junco perched on the crown Of a well-brushed black soft hat that might have been as Old as he was. It made a rather pretty picture and the Old man's eyes shone with delight long after the junco had flown. Ya-as, he drawled to his companions after the bird had gone, dem birds, dey al'ays does laike dat hat. One day down in Souf Ca'lina ah was sitting in de field a long time an' one Of dem cuckoo birds des came along and laid an aig in dat hat. Yessir, it done did. This may be true.

In The Longest Road, one of America's most respected writers takes an epic journey across America, Airstream in tow, and asks everyday Americans what unites and divides a country as endlessly diverse as it is large. Standing on a wind-scoured island off the Alaskan coast, Philip Caputo marveled that its Inupiat Eskimo schoolchildren pledge allegiance to the same flag as the children of Cuban immigrants in Key West, six thousand miles away. And a question began to take shape: How does the United States, peopled by every race on earth, remain united? Caputo resolved that one day he'd drive from the nation's southernmost point to the northernmost point reachable by road, talking to everyday Americans about their lives and asking how they would answer his question. So it was that in 2011, in an America more divided than in living memory, Caputo, his wife, and their two English setters made their way in a truck and classic trailer (hereafter known as "Fred" and "Ethel") from Key West, Florida, to Deadhorse, Alaska, covering 16,000 miles. He spoke to everyone from a West Virginia couple saving souls to a Native American shaman and taco entrepreneur. What he found is a story that will entertain and inspire readers as much as it informs them about the state of today's United States, the glue that holds us all together, and the conflicts that could cause us to pull apart.

Excerpt from The Way We Live Now, Vol. 2 of 2 The door was Opened for him by Ruby, who by no means greeted him with a happy countenance. It was the second morning after the night of her imprisonment and nothing had occurred to alleviate her woe. At this very moment her lover Should have been in Liverpool, but he was, in fact, abed in Welbeck Street. Yes, Sir She's at home, said Ruby, with a baby in her arms and a little child hanging on to her dress. Don't pull so, Sally. Please, sir, is Sir Felix still in London? Ruby had written to Sir Felix the very night of her imprisonment, but had not as yet received any reply. Paul, whose mind was altogether intent on his own troubles, declared that at present he knew nothing about Sir Felix, and was then shown into Mrs. Hurtle's room.
