Cover of When the Elephants Dance


"Papa explains the war like this:'When the elephants dance, the chickens must be careful.' The great beasts, as they circle one another, shaking the trees and trumpeting loudly, are the Amerikanos and the Japanese as they fight. And the Philippine Islands? We are the small chickens."
--an excerpt from the book

Cover of the Four Forty-Five to Cannes
"Chazz Jorgen knew that if he hustled he could catch the five-forty-five to Cannes, France, and make up for lost time. First he needed to needed to make this one to Ventimiglia and in Ventimiglia connect to the five-forty-five. But his shoes and the Italians were not cooperating, everyone moving in slow motion, strolling as if they had time overflowing from their trouser pockets though the conductor had already blown the whistle once from binario undici, track eleven."
