‘Justice’ Is $6.98 for a Prize Winner

“What a powerful and beautiful book! Kevin Boyle has done a great service to history with ‘Arc of Justice.’ With deep research and graceful prose, he has taken a single moment, the hot September day in 1925 when Ossian and Gladys Sweet moved into a bungalow on Garland Avenue in Detroit, and from that woven an amazing and unforgettable story of prejudice and justice at the dawn of America’s racial awakening.”

So says David Maraniss. But what does he know? He only won the Pulitzer Prize.

Here are two cents I can add that Maraniss cannot. Arc of Justice: A Saga of Race, Civil Rights, and Murder in the Jazz Age — which, by the way, won the National Book Award — is currently on sale down at the old neighborhood bookstore for $6.98 in hardcover. While supplies last.
