Contents / Notes

Summary, etc.: Award-winning author of New York Times Editor's Choice Tales of the New WorldIn prose that is darkly humorous and alive with detail, Valiant Gentlemen reimagines the lives and intimate friendships of humanitarian and Irish patriot Roger Casement; his closest friend, Herbert Ward; and Ward's extraordinary wife, Argentinian-American heiress Sarita Sanford, in a uniquely human account of some of the early 20th century's larger historical figures. "PEN/Faulkner Award-winning Murray delivers an epic adventure ... that will thrill history buffs and literary fiction fans alike. Ward's extraordinary wife, the Argentinian-American heiress Sarita Sanford completes the love triangle. The characters jump off the page with the sly, dark humor and language brimming with energy. Themes of friendship, identity, grief and betrayal combined with clever satire and meticulous attention to historical detail will have this book mentioned alongside the likes of Peter Carey, Hilary Mantel and Lily King."--Bill's Bookshelf Selector, Bill Kelly.
