Praise from Kirkus Review:
“More than her stories, the author has a fine eye for the details of newsroom politics back when newspapers were read and newsrooms were packed with offbeat characters. Sometimes gonzo, sometimes hard-charging—a welcome report from the front lines in a time of torment and hope.”

Review from NPR:
“Apple, Tree is a sweet, smart collection, and—it has to be said—a perfect gift for a parent you love.”
Praise from Publishers Weekly:
“Beer’s evenhanded narrative makes a convincing case for Charleston as the greatest baseball player who never played in the majors. This is a solid hit for baseball historians and fans alike.”
Review in H-War:
“Franqui’s archival research is exemplary, as evidenced by the wealth of materials gleaned from rarely cited collections on the island and mainland. Above all, he is successful in demonstrating the extent to which military service shaped modern Puerto Rico.”

Praise from Shelf Awareness:
“Three Seconds in Munich adeptly scrutinizes the infamous basketball tournament between the U.S. and the Soviet Union that took place at the same Games, and sportswriter David A.F. Sweet (Lamar Hunt) strikes a perfect balance in discussing both events.”
Starred review from Library Journal:
“Readers with an interest in World War II, 20th-century political history, Jewish history, and the Holocaust should find this an incisive and insightful exploration of the leading figures of this period.”
Linda M. Waggoner
Praise from a Kirkus Review:
“Illustrated with black-and-white photographs, this lively biography pays long-overdue tribute to a forgotten star of the silent era while celebrating Native American contributions to the motion picture industry.”
Review in The Journal of Modern History:
“It is also the beguiling set of characters, the colorful primary sources, and the vivid style with which Keller brings them all to life that make this book worth reading—not only for specialists of West Africa, but for students of colonial history and of police history more broadly.”
