“All Other Nights is a picture of the Civil War I've never seen before -- Jew divided from Jew, just like the rest of the country. Eccentric and highly memorable characters, tragedy, deep romance, and an intricate plot make this a thrilling read that I will be recommending to a broad swath of customers.”
-- Lilla G. Weinberger, Readers' Books, Sonoma, CA
Selected by Indie Booksellers for the Winter 2011 Reading Group List
“The Civil War divided America's Jewish population geographically, but they remained united by business, family relationships, and religion. The moral divide over slavery casts a Union soldier of Jewish descent into acts of espionage that involve both family and friends. How this night is different from every other night is a profound question that Jews ask themselves during Passover. What happens to this soldier on various nights of his deployment wrecks havoc with his identity and his allegiances. Horn paces this novel like a thriller. I couldn't put it down!”
-- Dianne Patrick, Snowbound Books, Marquette, MI


Description

A gripping epic about the great moral struggles of the Civil War in which a Jewish soldier in the Union army is ordered to murder his own uncle, who is plotting to assassinate President Lincoln.

William Dufris began his audio career doing radio plays, audiobooks, film/animation dubbing, and language tapes in London, where he lived for thirteen years. While there, he had the honor of sharing the microphone in a number of BBC Radio plays with Kathleen Turner, Sharon Gless, Stockard Channing, and Helena Bonham-Carter.

Praise For All Other Nights

"With only the inflections of his voice, Dufris makes real the cacophony of battle, the sounds of a slave auction, and the refined tones of a Southern drawing room." ---AudioFile
