✏Devil in the Grove Book Summary : Devil in the Grove, winner of the Pulitzer Prize for general nonfiction, is a gripping true story of racism, murder, rape, and the law. It brings to light one of the most dramatic court cases in American history, and offers a rare and revealing portrait of Thurgood Marshall that the world has never seen before. As Isabel Wilkerson’s The Warmth of Other Suns did for the story of America’s black migration, Gilbert King’s Devil in the Grove does for this great untold story of American legal history, a dangerous and uncertain case from the days immediately before Brown v. Board of Education in which the young civil rights attorney Marshall risked his life to defend a boy slated for the electric chair—saving him, against all odds, from being sentenced to death for a crime he did not commit.

✏Beneath a Ruthless Sun Book Summary : NAMED A BEST BOOK OF THE YEAR BY NPR and THE WASHINGTON POST "Compelling, insightful and important, Beneath a Ruthless Sun exposes the corruption of racial bigotry and animus that shadows a community, a state and a nation. A fascinating examination of an injustice story all too familiar and still largely ignored, an engaging and essential read." --Bryan Stevenson, author of Just Mercy From the author of the Pulitzer Prize-winning bestseller Devil in the Grove, the gripping true story of a small town with a big secret. In December 1957, the wife of a Florida citrus baron is raped in her home while her husband is away. She claims a "husky Negro" did it, and the sheriff, the infamous racist Willis McCall, does not hesitate to round up a herd of suspects. But within days, McCall turns his sights on Jesse Daniels, a gentle, mentally impaired white nineteen-year-old. Soon Jesse is railroaded up to the state hospital for the insane, and locked away without trial. But crusading journalist Mabel Norris Reese cannot stop fretting over the case and its baffling outcome. Who was protecting whom, or what? She pursues the story for years, chasing down leads, hitting dead ends, winning unlikely allies. Bit by bit, the unspeakable truths behind a conspiracy that shocked a community into silence begin to surface. Beneath a Ruthless Sun tells a powerful, page-turning story rooted in the fears that rippled through the South as integration began to take hold, sparking a surge of virulent racism that savaged the vulnerable, debased the powerful, and roils our own times still.

✏Sympathy for the Devil Book Summary : The story of the Rolling Stones is one of the epic rock 'n' roll yarns of our time. Their music defined today's cultural landscape and their history is a source of endless fascination for music fans around the world. Yet one crucial part of that story has never been comprehensively analysed: the role of Brian Jones, the visionary who founded the band and controlled their early music down to the smallest detail. Drawing on over one hundred interviews with key principals including Keith Richards, Andrew Oldham and Marianne Faithfull, this is a story told from a totally new perspective and which lays bare the shocking ruthlessness, internal warfare and sexual competition within this most legendary of bands. As well as exploring Jones' crucial role in the Stones' music, it will also investigate the unravelling of his psyche, as observed by Brian's family, friends, bandmates, lovers and enemies. Victors get to write the history - but it's never wholly true. Brian's life story is a gripping one, an epic battle between creativity and ambition, between self-sabotage and betrayal. This book will disentangle the threads of the Rolling Stones story and put Brian Jones firmly in the foreground.

✏The Devil Uncle Will Book Summary : Maybe you'll be glad Uncle Will wasn't your best friend, but you will be glad you've read about Uncle Will and his exploits. We're talking about someone whose funeral was attended by people who mostly just wanted to make sure he was dead: Even the preacher couldn't cook up a decent eulogy! Oh, Uncle Will was a character, all right. His specialties: lyin', cheatin', gamblin', drinkin', and good livin'. And, in his own way, lovin'. The Devil and Uncle Will immortalizes many of the unforgettable adventures and stories Harold Miles heard from Uncle Will himself. Written with a special fondness for the old reprobate, The Devil and Uncle Will brings to life an extraordinary character-someone who actually claimed he'd made a pact with the devil. Latter-day Faust, good-ol'-boy gone bad-that's Uncle Will. Harold Miles' style is lively, poignant, captivating. He knew and loved-and often found it hard to love-Uncle Will. Heck, he's kinfolk. But though there's an underlying deep seriousness in The Devil and Uncle Will, it's also an extremely funny book-southern humor at its best. You'll laugh out loud, smile, maybe even shed a tear or two. But, whatever your emotions, you won't want to put this book down!
