Best known as an independent filmmaker, John Sayles’s historical novel, A Moment in the Sun (McSweeney’s $29.00) is a sweeping story of the turn of the twentieth century. Spanning five years and half a dozen countries, from the white-racist coup in Wilmington, North Carolina to the bloody U.S. interventionism in the Philippines, from Mark Twain to the assassin of President McKinley, A Moment in the Sun is history rediscovered through the lives of the people who made it happen. Sayles is the author of three novels, two short-story collections, and a work of non-fiction.
