'Brilliantly handled… a great first novel' Bethan Roberts 
'I found myself engrossed… a vibrant, moving tale' Alison Smith 
The heat is oppressive and storms are brewing in Brighton in the summer of 1982. Little Gold, a boyish girl on the brink of adolescence, is struggling with the reality of her broken family and a home descending into chaos. Her only refuge is the tree at the end of her garden. 
Into her fractured life steps elderly neighbour, Peggy Baxter. The connection between the two is instant, but just when it seems that Little Gold has found solace, outsiders appear who seek to take advantage of her frail family in the worst way possible. In an era when so much is hard to speak aloud, can Little Gold share enough of her life to avert disaster? And can Peggy Baxter, a woman running out of time and with her own secrets to bear, recognise the danger before it’s too late?

    Mike is an eighteen-year-old high school student in 1960s Hollywood when he's picked up by Glen, who offers him money for casual sex. Mike needs the cash to take his girl to the prom, so he agrees; for him, it's just another casual encounter. But when his girl jilts him for a jock, he swears off women, leaves home, and goes into business for himself by becoming a full-time hustler of gay men. 
    
    And then he encounters Glen again, and finds himself falling in love for the first time in his life. Mike's journey--from love back to hustling, from hustling to the degradation of nude modeling and porn flicks, from the slimy world of modeling and porn to becoming the sex slave of a wealthy patron, and finally, the return to true romance once more--when he finds Glen for the third time--is the inspiring story of a young man who finally comes to understand himself and his place in the world, to accept himself for who and what he really is.
    
    Another great read by a master storyteller!

    An Amazon Best Book of the Month in Literature and Fiction
    The award-winning author of The Revolution of Little Girls and Terminal Velocity concludes her grand survey of political activism twenty years later with her provocative new novel
    
    Blanche McCrary Boyd’s first novel in twenty years continues the story of her protagonist Ellen Burns. When Tomb of the Unknown Racist opens in 1999, Ellen—now sober, haunted by her activist past, her failed relationships—is peacefully taking care of her demented mother in South Carolina. 
    
    Ellen’s brother, Royce, was a celebrated novelist who, a decade earlier, saw his work adopted by racists and fell under the sway of white supremacy. Ellen thought him dead from a botched FBI raid on his compound. But when his estranged daughter turns up on the news claiming he might be responsible for kidnapping her two mixed-race children, Ellen travels to New Mexico to help her newfound niece. The book chronicles Ellen’s search for Royce, her descent into the dark abyss of the simmering race war in the country, and the confrontation that occurs when she learns the truth about her family’s past.
    
    Tomb of the Unknown Racist is a thrilling novel set in the shadow of the Oklahoma City bombing, the subculture of white supremacy, and deep state government. A family drama set against political and racial struggle, it is a tour de force end to a trilogy by a stunning writer whose work has offered a resonant survey of politics and activism across the American experience.
    
    "Part detective story, part spiritual quest, Tomb of the Unknown Racist explores the intricate world of the white supremacy movement, and the treacherous ways that racism shatters families and spreads its dark roots across America. . . A character both innocent and wise, searching and grounded, [Ellen Burns] sees the worst in the good, and the good in the worst. We need more 'old outlaws' like [her], who try to right the wrongs of the world, even when they’re impossible to change." —Hannah Tinti, author of The Twelve Lives of Samuel Hawley
