First lines: How We Win and Revolution Sunday


It all begins by opening a book and starting with the first page. That being said, first lines are captivating, perhaps even intoxicating. Here are some of our first lines from our two latest Melville House releases.


How We Win
by George Lakey
December 4, 2018

“Nonviolent direct action is a set of tactics that go outside conventional means of advocacy, like running for office, going to the courts, doing media campaigns, and the like.”



Revolution Sunday
by Wendy Guerra
translated by Achy Obejas
December 4, 2018

“I must be the only person in Havana who feels lonely today.”
