Nora's Armyby Denis Collins
Nora's Army is a racially charged love triangle set in Washington DC during the spring and summer of 1932, when 60,000 WWI veterans set up camp around the US Capitol to lobby for early payment of a congressional bonus. For one of the first times in American history, blacks and whites in those camps lived in complete integration. The novel's three main characters are: Nora O'Sullivan, a 17 year old Irish girl who crossed the Atlantic while tracking a thief. Randolph Walker, 18–year–old Communist organizer. He grew up as a middle class white kid until the age of 13 when his father discovered his illegitimacy and sent him to DC to live with his black paternal grandfather. Eric Sevareid, 19–year–old fledgling reporter who writes the first Bonus Army stories. The friendship and romance that develops among Nora, Walker and Sevareid is the core of the novel.
