The Berlin Boxing Club by Robert Sharenow
The Berlin Boxing Club

newskid23, September 2, 2011

Incredibly well-crafted historical fiction set in Berlin in the 1930's. The Berlin Boxing Club explores the build-up to WWII and the growing persecution of the Jews through the eyes of a teen boy and his experiences with German boxer Max Schmeling.

Telex from Cuba by Rachel Kushner
Telex from Cuba

newskid23, September 28, 2008

Telex from Cuba is a fascinating historical novel that tells the story of an American corporate enclave in Cuba just before the revolution. The story is told through the voices of several adolescent American children, an arms dealer and a prostitute to the rich and famous. The attention to historical detail adds depth and richness to a well-crafted tale of class, race and politics. A great read!
