Nags Head 1958 is the latest addition to our Outer Banks fiction shelves and if the front cover doesn't sell you, the back cover will:
"I was a purposeless young man adrift on the rising tide of the 1950's a decade not as tumultuous as the decade that followed, perhaps, yet enduring rules had been broken by characters named Elvis, Marilyn and Lolita. For eight years we were led by a man they called Ike- you know, the man who won the Second World War. He was a hero. Leni Fuchs was a victim of that war. She grew up in Germany, I grew up in West Virginia coal country. In 1958, Leni was thirty-three I was twenty six; a young twenty six at that. I knew next to nothing about her background until midsummer of that year. The place was Nags Head, North Carolina."
Thus follows a story about two people coming together in the Outer Banks of yesteryear. A story of intrigue... love... spies.. and more. John Silver, Downtown Books customer, recently read Nags Head 1958 from cover to cover and reported that not only was it historically and culturally accurate, but a very enjoyable and entertaining read that he highly recommends to any reader and all Outer Banks lovers.
