What people are saying…

Percival Everett’s novel Erasure won the Hurston/Wright Legacy Award, and his most recent work, A History of the African-American People [Proposed] By Strom Thurmond, as told to Percival Everett and James Kincaid [A Novel], ruffled many Confederate feathers.


Description

Akashic Books announces a provocative series of books with early writings from United States presidents, starting with George Washington and moving chronologically forward in time. Each book will present an introduction by a talented and highly acclaimed contemporary writer. This series will be unlike any other presidential commentaries in print, and will be characterized by a critical viewpoint that will provide a counterbalance to the overly reverent and conservative analyses that invariably accompany presidential writings.
