WHAT REVIEWERS ARE SAYING...
MADAME DE STAEL: The First Modern Woman
By Francine du Plessix Gray / Atlas & Co.
‚ÄúFrancine du Plessix Gray does a marvelous job in¬† ‚ÄėMadame de Sta√ęl,‚Äô filling us in on the French Revolution as though it were (almost) easy to understand, recognizing de Sta√ęl‚Äôs faults (delusions of grandeur, mostly), while steadfastly commending her talents, her sweet nature, her generosity. I loved this book!‚ÄĚ ‚Äď CAROLYN SEE, The Washington Post
By G. Willow Wilson and M.K. Perker / Vertigo
‚ÄúCairo the city holds many secrets for foreigners. ‚ÄėCairo‚Äô the graphic novel isn‚Äôt so obtuse; it puts some of those secrets out there for all to see and uses them to kick off a story that is part mythology, part social commentary and part full-blown adventure.‚ÄĚ

TRIED BY WAR: Abraham Lincoln as Commander in Chief
By James M. McPherson / Penguin Press
‚ÄúIt is hard to do justice in a short review to how convincingly and compellingly McPherson narrates Lincoln‚Äôs simultaneous mastery of the political, strategic and moral challenge of his historical moment.‚ÄĚ
