Fiction:

  • Josephine Humphreys, Nowhere Else on Earth (2000).  A brilliantly-realized story of race, class, place, and the deeper meanings of American history.
  • Barry Unsworth, Sacred Hunger (1993).  Perhaps the best historical novel I have ever read.
  • Barry Unsworth, The Quality of Mercy (2012)  A worthy sequel to Sacred Hunger.
