James was born in the mid-forties, towards the end of World War II. He has lived in the Northwestern part of the United States for all of his sixty-five years. Watching his grandchildren grow and live lives very different from his has renewed his appreciation of his own childhood and the experiences he has recorded in "Apple Box Boy." His grandson, Skylar, still thinks Grandpa is pulling his leg when he tells his stories about growing up in the Yakima Valley of Washington State. It's a book about freedom, adventure, and character development of days gone by.

The Zodiac Killer aside, no unsolved criminal case in American history has quite gripped investigators nationwide like the Boy in the Box Case of Philadelphia, 1957.It is a story of sadness, teeming with hope. Originally seen as a local, solvable case, it has grown to include its own Website and appearances on America's Most Wanted, 48 Hours, Cold Case, and the like. Still the case is unsolved, and as Detective Tom Augustine recently said, “The case just won't go away.” On Monday, February 25, 1957, a young Caucasian boy, estimated to be between the ages of three and five, was found nude along Susquehanna Road, an illegal dumping ground for unwanted trash, located just some eight miles north of downtown Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, the City of Brotherly Love. The boy's body was partially covered with a recently cleaned, rust-colored, Indian-style blanket remnant over his loin and was placed inside a relatively pristine J.C. Penney bassinet box. Ironically, the discarded box was in better shape than the boy.What the Boy in the Box Case boils down to is quite simple. So much effort was put into the case because the victim is the epitome of innocence. As Lt. Kenneth Coluzzi, who once headed the Special Investigations Unit of the Philadelphia Police Department's Homicide Division, put it, “It's about giving the boy an identity and a name.” This came to be a monumental task for all involved.So began to build this story, the story of a boy, a box, and a lot of love, on February 25, 1957.

From the national bestselling author of The Last Crossing, a story that’s “by turns a western, a critique of Hollywood, and a novel of ideas” (The New York Times Book Review). In 1920s Hollywood, elusive producer Damon Ira Chance is obsessed with making movies rooted in American history and experience. So after discovering that small-time actor Shorty McAdoo is a real-life cowboy—and is even rumored to have played a role in the Cypress Hills Massacre—Chance commissions ambitious young screenwriter Harry Vincent to find Shorty and retell his story. But as Harry digs deeper into Shorty’s life, he uncovers a surprising tale of survival, power, greed, and the seduction of dreams . . . all with ending that no one is prepared for. “A wonderful writer . . . The Englishman’s Boy is a great accomplishment.” —Richard Ford “An epic tale that brings together the American West before the turn of the century with the Hollywood of the 1920s.” — Los Angeles Times “Fascinating . . . Vanderhaeghe seamlessly alternates two interconnected stories. . . . Masterful storytelling.” —Entertainment Weekly “A compelling yarn that delivers provocative intellectual content about the ways our tendency to mythologize history can prevent us from learning its lessons.” —San Francisco Chronicle

These hard-hitting, deeply felt stories follow straight arrows and outlaws, have-it-alls and outcasts, as they take stock of their lives and missteps and struggle to rise above their turbulent pasts. A salesman re-examines his tenuous relationship with his sister after she is brutally attacked. A house painter plans a new life for his family as he plots his last bank robbery. A drifter gets a chance at love when he delivers news of a barfly's death to the man's estranged daughter. A dissatisfied yuppie is oddly envious of his ex-con brother as they celebrate their first Christmas together. Set in a Los Angeles depicted with aching clarity, Lange's stories are gritty, and his characters often less than perfect. Beneath their macho bravado, however, they are full of heart and heartbreak.
