A Song of Sixpence, by A. J. Cronin:
Laurence Carroll was a sensitive, warmhearted child, something of an outcast because his gay young parents were nonconformists in their straitlaced Scottish village. A. J. Cronin brings vivid memories of his own childhood and all of his storytelling magic to this account of a boy's struggle to find himself in a world peopled with colorful rogues and wonderfully eccentric friends.
When the Cheering Stopped, by Gene Smith:
This is a remarkable and moving account of an extraordinary episode in American history--President Woodrow Wilson's collapse after his return from the Versailles peace conference. Who ran the government while the President lay helpless? What was the role of his lovng, strong-willed wife? The dramatic story is unusually timely in the light of recent discussions of presidential disability. [J.F.K.'s assassination.]
Captain Newman, M.D., by Leo Rosten:
This strikingly original novel laid in the mental ward of an Air Force hospital is a rich mixture of comedy and compassion. With Captain Newman, the gently sardonic chief psychiatrist, and his unforgettable aides and patients you'll swing between hilarity and heartbreak in what the "New York Herald Tribune" has called "a book of great insight, warmth and humor."
