Books, previously published and unplished, by Paul Hughes, are being released by UCS PRESS in association with the surviving heirs of Paul and Marjorie Hughes.
Go to http://www.marjimbooks.com to read about The Paul Hughes Collection, which debuts with Part One (of three parts) of Retreat From Rostov, originally released by Random House in 1943.
Retreat From Rostov was hailed as one of the best World War II novels written while WWII was still raging. It presents a most unique view into the lives of civilians and military officers and enlisted men from both sides in what was, up to that time, believed to be the greastest battle in the history of the world -- the Battle of Rostov, during which for the first time the armies of Hitler were defeated.
Literary works coming over the next several months include Parts Two and Three of Retreat From Rostov; Mars Descending, a futuristic story told by an aging Indian sage; Bediquette, a satire; and Temple of Joy, a comedy-satire in a style like Mark Twain might have written had he lived well into the 20th century.
Two generations have been born without knowing about this very creaztive writer. UCS PRESS is happy to reintroduce the words of Paul Hughes to the world.
