New Williams Book Released

Longtime Crossroads Writers Club member Kirby Williams has published his latest novel. The Long Road from Paris was released December 4th. The following excerpt is from

The further adventures of ex-pat Urby Brown, black jazz musician and private eye, set in the maelstrom of 1930s Europe, from acclaimed novelist Kirby Williams.
Against a background of European fascism and the black jazz scene in Paris of that time, this fascinating and important novel, a duet with Kirby Williams’ previous book Rage in Paris, follows the desperate attempts of Urby Brown to escape to America with his Jewish lover, Hannah Korngold. As the Nazi net closes around them in June 1940, Urby and Hannah make one last throw of the dice, knowing that a failed attempt to escape will prove fatal.

Like the historical thrillers of Alan Furst, this novel explores the lives of black Americans as they confront the demons of nationalism, racism and anti-Semitism which spawned the deadly horrors of the last century and are alive today, leading perhaps to new disasters.

The Long Road from Paris was also recently featured on Click here to see the article, "Five Books You May Have Missed in December."  

Sincere congratulations to Kirby for this achievement!
