Cualquier Otro Dia = The Given Day Cover Image


En 1918 Babe Ruth, el mitico bateador de los Red Sox de Boston, se encuentra con su pelota mas dificil: la huelga. Luther Laurence huye del beisbol, de Tulsa y de un rastro de sangre para cumplir lo que se espera de un negro en el Este: ser un criado. El policia Danny Coughin es enviado a inspeccionar un buque de guerra con unos cuantos soldados enfermos de vuelta de la Gran Guerra y aquejados de una rara enfermedad: una gripe de consecuencias insospechadas que dejara miles de cadaveres en el North End, el barrio italiano en que Danny, hijo del capitan de la Policia de Boston, espera su placa de oro y su nombramiento como el inspector mas joven de la comisaria. Pero despues de 1919 el North End ya no sera el mismo, Boston y Danny tampoco. ENGLISH DESCRIPTION Filled with a cast of unforgettable characters more richly drawn than any Lehane has ever created, The Given Day tells the story of two families--one black, one white--swept up in a maelstrom of revolutionaries and anarchists, immigrants and ward bosses, Brahmins and ordinary citizens, all engaged in a battle for survival and power. Beat cop Danny Coughlin, the son of one of the city's most beloved and powerful police captains, joins a burgeoning union movement and the hunt for violent radicals. Luther Laurence, on the run after a deadly confrontation with a crime boss in Tulsa, works for the Coughlin family and tries desperately to find his way home to his pregnant wife. Here, too, are some of the most influential figures of the era--Babe Ruth; Eugene O'Neill; leftist activist Jack Reed; NAACP founder W. E. B. DuBois; Mitchell Palmer, Woodrow Wilson's ruthless Red-chasing attorney general; cunning Massachusetts governor Calvin Coolidge; and an ambitious young Department of Justice lawyer named John Hoover.
