We welcome two authors with fascinating new novels. Mary Helen Stefaniak is a Gardner Fiction Book Award winner and author of three novels, whose latest is The Califfs of Baghdad, Georgia, a wonderfully seductive story that ranges from 1864 Savannah to 1775 Baghdad. Loosely following A Thousand and One Nights, it is a spirited romp that connects camels fluent in Arabic with the Ku Klux Klan and babies switched at birth. Joseph Skibell’s novel A Curable Romantic is a ”fat, cheeky, sweeping saga” that begins in 1895 Austria. Critics call it ”intellectual comedy of the highest order.” Skibell’s previous novels include A Blessing on the Moon and The English Disease. (jasbro)
