Gary J. Bass - The Blood Telegram
Politics and Prose, Monday, August 25 at 7pm
Nixon’s White House tapes offer insight into more than just Watergate, and Bass, a Princeton professor of politics, has mined them for the story of the U.S. role in the bloody birth of Bangladesh in 1971. Calling the deaths of hundreds of thousands of Hindus a “forgotten genocide,” Bass shows in detail how Nixon and Kissinger supported Pakistan’s brutal military dictatorship in the battle with India over what was then East Pakistan.

Maxwell Neely-Cohen - Echo of the Boom
Politics and Prose, Tuesday, August 26 at 7pm
The four D.C. teens at the center of Neely-Cohen’s debut novel live in the bubble moment between the Cold War and the war on terror. Surrounded by technology and immersed in pop culture, these characters nonetheless feel a rising tension in the air; as the section epigraphs from Revelation suggest, something big is about to change the world. (Rare Bird)

Gordon’s short novels have both literary and historical heft, featuring figures as estimable as Thomas Mann and Simone Weil, as well as fictional creations ranging from an American student in Italy to the eponymous Irish dissembler.
