SIGNED. 704pp. Octavo [23.5 cm] 1/4 brown paper with rust colored paper covered boards. Very good. The spine ends are gently bumped. There is a very small gouge in the front board, and there are several very faint scratches on the rear board. The dust jacket is in near fine condition, with minor edge wear.


Coursing through some of the pivotal events of our time-- including the Spanish Influenza pandemic-- and culminating in the Boston Police Strike of 1919, The Given Day explores the crippling violence and irrepressible exuberance of a country at war with, and in the thrall of, itself. As Danny Luther, and those around them struggle to define themselves in increasingly turbulent times, they gradually find family in one another and, together, ride a rising storm of hardship, deprivation, and hope that will change all their lives.
