Last Refuge of Scoundrels

Last Refuge of Scoundrels

A Revolutionary Novel

Early critical acclaim from Pulitzer Prize-winning scholars and best-selling authors Studs Terkel, Jonathan Kozol, Robert Coles, Howard Zinn, John Ferling and Winston Groom: “Last Refuge of Scoundrels” is the bottom-up story of the American Revolution brought to life vividly, compellingly, suggestively. It’s a story that gives America its past in a manner worthy of comparison to Tolstoy’s effort to understand and render history and does so in a manner that’s rich, rambunctious, exploding with vitality and bubbling with wild humor. A delightfully irreverent look at the Revolution, it tells the story of John Lawrence a naive young merchant’s son who finds love and his life’s purpose in Deborah Simpson, a spy working in collusion with George Washington to lead An unsung army of ordinary Americans against the self-interested Founding Fathers as much as the bumbling Brits. “Last Refuge of Scoundrels” weaves meticulous research and fantastical fable into a poetic tale that’s at once a rollicking romp, a haunting love story and a revisionist historical epic.
