The long-awaited final volume of the Cicero Trilogy, from a beloved bestselling author “incapable of writing an unenjoyable book” (The Wall Street Journal). At the age of forty-eight, Cicero—the greatest orator of his time—is in exile, his power sacrificed on the altar of his principles. The only way to return to Rome is to pledge his support to a charismatic and dangerous enemy: Julius Caesar. Harnessing his political cunning, unrivalled intellect, and the sheer brilliance of his words, Cicero fights his way back to prominence. Yet no public figure is completely safeguarded against the unscrupulous ambition of others. Riveting and tumultuous, Dictator encompasses the most epic events in ancient history, including the collapse of the Roman Republic, the murder of Pompey, and the assassination of Caesar. But its central question is a timeless one: how to keep political freedom unsullied by personal gain, vested interests, and the corrosive effects of ceaseless foreign wars. In Robert Harris’s indelible portrait, Cicero is a deeply fascinating hero for his own time and for ours.

From the author of The Bird Factory, a new novel about an estranged father and son forced together under the same roof—one losing his grip on reality and the other discovering a secret past that he may never fully understand. Aaron, unhappy in middle age, must deal with the reverberations of the financial crisis, his increasingly alienated teenaged daughter and the sudden care of his father, Karl, a man he hardly knows, who is descending into Alzheimer’s. Karl is a man who has survived by reinventing himself many times over. Blustering, arrogant, he is convinced that the world is intentionally trying to confuse him, not least his good-for-nothing son. Not like his other son, the one he left behind. If only Karl could remember his name, and where he is, Karl would go and find him. With a deft touch and a wonderful ability to show the humorous in the tragic, David Layton has created a novel that explores the relationship between fathers and sons, and how the events of the past translate down through generations. Told from the alternating perspectives of Karl and Aaron, and travelling from present-day Toronto to a postwar settlement of Jewish immigrants in the Dominican Republic, The Dictator is at turns funny, poignant and insightful.

"Forms of Dictatorship argues that that Latina/o fiction unveils the horrors of domination in both Latin America and the United States, the manuscript reveals how Latina/os are haunted by multiple kinds of repressive regimes. An intra-ethnic study of Latina/o fiction published from the early 1990s to the present, Forms of Dictatorship is the first book-length study to examine Latina/o novels that employ dictatorship as a historical reality and a literary trope. This work constitutes a new sub-genre of contemporary Latina/o fiction known as the Latina/o dictatorship novel. Forms of Dictatorship is also the first study to comparatively analyze how U.S. Latina/os from different national origins in the Caribbean, Mexico, and Central and South America represent authoritarianism. Critical examinations of Latina/o literature have privileged the lenses of race, class, gender, sexuality, migration, and language; my study examines authoritarianism alongside these multiple axes"--
