"Highly recommended" by Choice While crossover books such as Rowling's Harry Potter series have enjoyed enormous sales and media attention, critical analysis of crossover fiction has not kept pace with the growing popularity of this new category of writing and reading. Falconer remedies this lack with close readings of six major British works of crossover fiction, and a wide-ranging analysis of the social and cultural implications of the global crossover phenomenon. A uniquely in-depth study of the crossover novel, Falconer engages with a ground-breaking range of sources, from primary texts, to child and adult reader responses, to cultural and critical theory.
A reliable historical account is a recitation of past truths and an important guide to living life in the present. A study of history enables future generations to avoid the pitfalls experienced by those who have lived before. This is a historical novel based in part on a true story about a Jewish family’s quest to escape oppression in Ukraine in the early twentieth century. The story traces the virulent anti-Semitism against the Jewish people in Ukraine and their need to escape from the darkness of a tsarist autocracy. In the guise of offering more freedoms to a downtrodden people, the tsarist regime was overthrown in a revolution led by the Marxist dictatorship of Lenin and then Stalin. That dictatorship became even more oppressive than the heavy hand of the tsar. The Jewish family became separated from the father when he escaped to the United States with the intent of the family joining him within months. Then the Great War closed all the doors for escape, and for almost eight years, a mother and her three young children lived through the horrors of world war, revolution, civil war, and communist dictatorship behind what became known as the Iron Curtain. The story culminates in the escape and ultimate reunion of the family with the father in the land of the free, the United States of America.
A young man looking for his girlfriend—that’s all Nigel Renoir thought he was. He had no idea, however, that he was a son of two worlds and a vital part of three. He didn’t know how or why his journey would encompass so many different people, starting with a decorated old warrior who was trying to save a world already lost, desperately hoping to accomplish a mission that didn’t seem to matter anymore. So many lives were about to be upended: from the citizens of the United Federation of American States to a gray world where all states and countries had become the same just to survive. The things Nigel did throughout the long years would affect them all if he just could find a way to walk out of the Sand Ridge Asylum of the Criminally Insane, located on an Earth that he’d never even been born on. All he’d tried to do was find his dear Angeline, but what he wound up doing started a conflict that would come to be known as the Crossover Wars. Maybe he should’ve listened to what his old Pop was always telling him: “Folks may not always look where they’re goin’, boy, but they always gonna go where they’re lookin’ . . .”
