War on the Margins
When the Channel Islands fell to the Germans in 1940, the Nazi regime set about imposing the racial policies of the Fatherland. This novel makes use of real historical documents and genuine correspondence to tell the story of Marlene Zimmer, a Jewish clerk in the Aliens Office in Jersey, who is forced to conceal her ancestry and eventually to flee and join the island's resistance.
Flappers and Philosophers
Published in 1920 following the success of the novel This Side of Paradise, Fitzgerald's first collection of short stories includes many of his finest. 'The Offshore Pirate', 'Bernice Bobs Her Hair', 'The Ice Palace' and 'Benediction' present his archetypal Jazz Age heroines, the beautiful and wilful young women who became a hallmark of his fiction. Part of the Cambridge Edition series, this volume includes notes and details of the stories' composition and publication history.
