More Description

One of the publishing sensations of recent years, garnering critical acclaim and rights sales in five countries, The Book of Kings, a novel that harnesses myth, history and philosophy to chronicle of Europe's helpless drift toward Nazism, established James Thackara as a novelist of extraordinary range and vision. America's Children is Thackara's first novel, now published for the first time in the United States.

It is a multi-layered story of Christian and Marxist values; of love of family and land; of invisible high energy particles and Pentagon technocrats; of thrilling scientific discovery and the unspeakable reality of Hiroshima. The great classical myths of man's mastery over nature suffuse America's Children with a seductive, deathly glow. A novel for our age, America's Children is a sublime and truly American story of the theft of atomic fire, the agonies of conscience, and our future in a nuclear world.
