From the book jacket: A Night in Cold Harbor is a fascinating historical novel, strongly plotted and peopled with characters who would be superbly romantic if they were not so realistic and believable. Set in early nineteenth century England, it is the story of a young aristocrat who was born with a silver spoon in his mouth and eventually gags on it. Before his maturity is achieved, however, he has devastated more than one life, including that of his illegitimate son. Romilly Brandon's belated search for this boy provides the framework for a tale of conflicting passions, cross-purposes, and tangled relationships. A central thread in the narrative is the issue of child labor, which, together with other contemporary evils suffered by the working class, resulted in rebellious, nomadic hordes of "Walking People," ragged, gypsy-like outcasts with a highly developed spy system and a rigid social code of their own. To young Dickie Cottar, who has taken to the roads and the rough fellowship of the Walking People, his natural father is a natural enemy. The bridging of this chasm between father and son is the heart of the story.

Not since Richard Wright's Native Son has the education of a young man been rendered as daringly, defiantly, and emotionally galvanizingly as in Murad Kalam's Night Journey. Night Journey is the story of Eddie Bloodpath, beautiful, oversized, awkward child of South Phoenix's Third Ward. Hefty and handsome, quiet and strong like his long-lost father, Eddie is the good son, seemingly immune to the powerful pull of the streets. His older brother, Turtle -- a frail, stuttering, grammar school dropout who was born to hustle -- isn't convinced that Eddie will stay out of trouble. Acting on instinct, Turtle plucks Eddie from the brink of the urban abyss and delivers him to the boxing gym. A perpetual innocent and reluctant pugilist, Eddie is adopted by a rogues' gallery of melancholy prizefighters, artful hustlers, strung-out mystics, pubescent crack lords, and drunken burnouts. He falls in love with Tessa, a hauntingly beautiful prostitute with whom he shares an unspeakable secret. Waiting in the wings is Marchalina, Eddie's high school crush, a privileged, bookish, North Phoenix girl who could save him from his worst instincts. When a senseless murder and its aftermath send Eddie running from the sun-washed landscape of the American Southwest, he tries to fight his way to safety -- first in Chicago, at the national amateur competition, and then in the surreal underworld of Las Vegas professional boxing. Rushing pell-mell toward manhood, Eddie must discover where his true allegiances lie. An American odyssey, Night Journey is a first novel equally remarkable for its raw power and wise empathy, borne up by Murad Kalam's unshakable belief in the ultimate grace of humanity.
