Amazon Featured Book-of-the-Week: “Traitor Comet” by Personne

Paris more than blossomed between World War I and World War II-it was considered by many to be the cultural and artistic capital of the world. Artists and thinkers from every corner of the globe visited or moved there, interacting with each other and developing some of our most exciting modern expression.

In Traitor Comet, not even the troubled young Austrian Geoff Weidmann is immune to the city’s allure. A hermit back home, he unwillingly joins his brother, Franz, and Franz’s French wife in Paris after his father forces the reunion. Though Geoff remains haunted by his violent past-both the Great War and what he might have done against another man on his farm-when he meets the surrealist poets Antonin Artaud and Robert Desnos, his world cracks open. Antonin holds a mirror to Geoff’s experiences, and Geoff ultimately comes to learn from their similarities; Robert is jovial and irreverent, fresh air lightening Geoff’s life. Both men are original, creative thinkers willing to argue against even the founder of the surrealist movement of which they are a part.

Part thrilling mystery, part coming-of-age tale, part page-turning history lesson, Traitor Comet is the first title in a historical novel series based on the real lives of avant-garde writers Antonin Artaud and Robert Desnos. It is also the first book, fiction or nonfiction, to focus on their unique friendship, which ultimately led one man to save the other from the Nazis. This little-known aspect of the lives of these otherwise famous men means that author Personne, an independent journalist, historian, and researcher, has a wealth of information to continue this story-from this introduction to these men who loved free thought and action into a dramatic series about these rebels with a cause.

Amazon Featured Book-of-the-Week: “Gunnar’s Odyssey” by Richard Hollenback

Route 66. The Pan-American Highway. The Oregon Trail.

Up there with some of the greatest well-known American travel routes is a lesser-known one, the Santa Fe Trail. For about sixty years, this primarily commercial highway stretched between Missouri and New Mexico. Both Mexican and American traders used it, as did gold rush adventurers, stagecoaches, and many others.

With the expansion of the US railroads by the 1880s, the trail fell into disuse. But before then, life-and-death dramas played out daily along the rough, remote route. In Gunnar’s Odyssey, Richard Hollenback’s meticulously researched Old West adventure novel, Gunnar Mann is facing many of those trials and tribulations as he travels along the Santa Fe Trail for months, his only goal to get back home to his girlfriend.

Driven by a factually accurate history of life in the Southwest during the mid-1800s and brightened with romance and the author’s genuine passion for the region, Gunnar’s Odyssey is the perfect page-turner for anyone who loves reading about the early American West.
