John SaylesA Moment in the Sun

John Sayles‘s previous novels include the National Book Award-nominated Union Dues. He has directed seventeen feature films, including Matewan, Lone Star, and Eight Men Out, and the recent Amigo. His many awards include a John Steinbeck Award, a John Cassavetes Award, a Lifetime Achievement Award from the Writers Guild of America, and two Academy Award nominations. Sayles reads from and discusses his new book A Moment in the Sun. It’s 1897. Gold has been discovered in the Yukon. New York is under the sway of Hearst and Pulitzer. And in a few months, an American battleship will explode in a Cuban harbor, plunging the U.S. into war. This is the unforgettable story of that extraordinary moment: the turn of the twentieth century, as seen by one of the greatest storytellers of our time.

($29.00) McSweeney’s ISBN #978-1-936365-18-0. You can visit John Sayles’s official web site as well.
