Lyons Opening

The Opening Kickoff

“Revsine has written a rich and thorough book, backed by ample research. But he’s also a college football fan, who’s served up a tale laced with humor and suspense. And he’s reminded us that this vile and glorious game has been this way all along.”–Boston Globe

Empire of Mud

“Certain adjectives spring to mind when reading this eye-opening, in-depth look at the history of America’s capital city in the 19th century: sordid, squalid, tawdry, filthy, and corrupt.”–Publishers Weekly

My Heart Is a Drunken Compass

The New York Times Book Review says: “Domingo Martinez is irreverent, judgmental and unapologetic. . . . Like “The Boy Kings of Texas” — Martinez’s first memoir, which was a 2012 finalist for the National Book Award and was recently optioned for an HBO series — his latest, “My Heart Is a Drunken Compass,” is a tragic comedy filled with wit and cultural insight. . . . Martinez’s voice, which seems like a cross between a border outlaw and an Ivy League scholar, is so self-assured it’s difficult not to get pulled into the story. Even when he hits rock bottom, he never loses his sense of humor, and his tenacity to survive is inspiring. If his raw will and Texan grit can’t save him, his writing just might.” Read an exclusive excerpt here!
