Book Review & Summary:

“Reading [The End of the Day] is like studying a stained-glass window up close, each piece bright and sharply cut, but when you step back and see it as a whole you discover a large, beautiful, mysterious work of art.” —David Ebershoff, New York Times bestselling author of The Danish Girl and The 19th Wife Following his acclaimed New York Times bestseller, Did You Ever Have a Family, Bill Clegg returns with a deeply moving, emotionally resonant second novel about the complicated bonds and breaking points of friendship, the corrosive forces of secrets, the heartbeat of longing, and the redemption found in forgiveness. A retired widow in rural Connecticut wakes to an unexpected visit from her childhood best friend whom she hasn’t seen in forty-nine years. A man arrives at a Pennsylvania hotel to introduce his estranged father to his newborn daughter and finds him collapsed on the floor of the lobby. A sixty-seven-year-old taxi driver in Kauai receives a phone call from the mainland that jars her back to a traumatic past. These seemingly disconnected lives come together as half-century-old secrets begin to surface. It is in this moment that Bill Clegg reminds us how choices—to connect, to betray, to protect—become our legacy. Deeply observed and beautifully written, this novel is a feat of storytelling, capturing sixty years within the framework of one fateful day.

Book Summary:

The book starts by asking what is creative aging? And suggests it involves a long process that grows from all of life's experience, if you have the courage to learn the lessons given to you by your own unique life journey. It shows how difficult it is to age positively in a culture that denies and denigrates aging. At age 85, the author, Ruby Abrahams uses her own experience and that of others she has known, to suggest ways of examining the life experience, so that lessons can be learned. Thus, older people become 'elders' growing in their own wisdom and contributing with that wisdom to their families and communities.

Book Summary:

A Boston Globe–Horn Book Honor Book Very short, creative stories pair with bold illustrations in this picture book that will inspire young readers to stretch their imaginations and write stories of their own. "One day. . . I went to school. I came home. The end," says our storyteller—a girl with a busy imagination and a thirst for adventure. The art tells a fuller tale of calamity on the way to school and an unpredictably happy ending. Each illustration in this inventive picture book captures multiple, unexpected, and funny storylines as the narrator shares her shorter-than-ever stories, ending with "One day. . . I wanted to write a book." This book demonstrates a unique approach to writing and telling stories and is a delightful gift for children as well as for teachers seeking a mentor text for their classrooms.

Book Summary:

In his final novel George V. Higgins provides us with yet another searing and enthralling dissection of the Boston underworld. Arthur McKeach and Nick Cistaro are notorious, especially to the Boston police department. Their reputations precede them as orchestrators of extortion, theft, fraud, bribery, assault and even murder. But for thirty two years, both have managed to elude the authorities. A profitable “arrangement” with the FBI, negotiated some thirty years previously, has kept them comfortably unindicted and free to monopolize Boston’s crime scene for all too long. In this thrilling, fast-paced George V. Higgins classic, the intricate channels of crime and American law enforcement turn out to be inextricably and precariously linked. Inspired by a true story, At End of Day frames a vivid and timelessly authentic narrative that has implications far beyond its pages.

Book Summary:

How a single day revealed the history and foreshadowed the future of Shanghai. It is November 12, 1941, and the world is at war. In Shanghai, just weeks before Pearl Harbor, thousands celebrate the birthday of China’s founding father, Sun Yat-sen, in a new city center built to challenge European imperialism. Across town, crowds of Shanghai residents from all walks of life attend the funeral of China’s wealthiest woman, the Chinese-French widow of a Baghdadi Jewish businessman whose death was symbolic of the passing of a generation that had seen Shanghai’s rise to global prominence. But it is the racetrack that attracts the largest crowd of all. At the center of the International Settlement, the heart of Western colonization—but also of Chinese progressivism, art, commerce, cosmopolitanism, and celebrity—Champions Day unfolds, drawing tens of thousands of Chinese spectators and Europeans alike to bet on the horses. In a sharp and lively snapshot of the day’s events, James Carter recaptures the complex history of Old Shanghai. Champions Day is a kaleidoscopic portrait of city poised for revolution.

Book Summary:

Note: You may read this synopsis without fear of spoiling your enjoyment of reading the book. It is carefully written not to reveal any details of the plot. If the Princeton Graduating class of 1908 were ranked financially, Logan Dean would be last. His deceased father was a congressman and so he managed to be admitted. When the novel opens he is a tough NYC investigative reporter who distinguishes himself by trying to bring to his stories a sense of history. His newspaper, the New York World, is owned by Pulitzer who is appalled over the pro British slant all the newspapers have adopted so he sends Dean to Berlin to report the war from the German side - not necessarily favoring the Kaiser. But the Germans don´t welcome him because they have an authoritarian approach to news gathering. Dean is a journalist who wants to get into the thick of it but without taking sides. However he stumbles on something so horrific that it changes his attitude and causes him to fight. However he views it as an act of a deranged individual of high rank, and not official German policy. As a normal young man he has instincts toward the opposite sex and has gotten involved with a German national who has a shady past. His relationship with her evolves through several stages. But on a trip to the Netherlands (a neutral country) he meets a British doctor who literally bowls him over. Their affair continues sporadically throughout the book. Dean is slowly changing his mind from that of a neutral reporter from a neutral country to an anti- war activist. Exposure to various wartime events, poison gas, bombing civilians, treating soldiers like donkeys, the battle of the Somme, etc. has its effect. He is called on to visit England for long periods of time and he sees the British are not that much different from the Germans. Either side will do anything to win. In the course of his work he becomes involved with many well known people of the time. Among them; the Kaiser and his family, Winston Churchill, George Bernard Shaw, the Irish hero Sir Roger Casement, the master chef, Escoffier and General Sir Douglas Haig. All the above notwithstanding, the main story deals with Logan Deans struggle with Haessler, the German Chief of Internal Security. It´s a story that involves ego, intrigue, sex, humiliation, and murder. The book will appeal to three types of readers; the action adventure lover, the history buff, and to those who like an historical romance. A reviewer wrote, There is enough action to satisfy any adventure fan, history buffs will love the coverage of the happenings prior to the entry of the US into the war, but Dr. Celia Gray is the most appealing character in the book. Dr. Carl Calendar, Chairman of the Humanities Dept. at Brookdale College wrote in his review, The scholarship is impeccable, and even a dedicated student of Irish nationalism like myself learned a lot about the Irish/German alliance during the war. What I especially like is the way it put me back into the World War I era and the wonderful way it recreates the feeling of being in these venerable cities (London and Berlin), not only the sights, sounds and architecture, but in the personalities of the British and the Germans.
