Lifetime Achievement Award -- Evan S. Connell

Deus Lo Volt Deus Lo Volt!
Chronicle of the Crusades
by Evan S. Connell
Our Price: $28.00

Recounted by a French nobleman at the end of the 1200s, this novel of the Crusades is rich history, populated with larger-than-life figures like Richard the Lion-Hearted and the Saracen palanquin Saladin; the action moves through grand set pieces such as the siege of Acre, the disastrous Children's Crusade, and the Westerners' sack of Constantinople. The Lannan Foundation Award recognizes Connell's body of work, which includes such classics as Son of the Morning Star: Custer and the Little Bighorn, Mrs. Bridge, and Mr. Bridge.

Poems

His subjects include a resplendent apricot gown once worn by Lillian Gish, a poignant human detail in Caravaggio's The Sacrifice of Isaac, and a host of variations on the Peaceable Kingdom, the obsessive lifework of the painter Edward Hicks.

Our Price: $14.00
