Herman Wouk's The Hope, The Glory and Inside, Outside Now Available as eBooks

Three Classic Novels Digitally Released in Premier Storyteller's Centennial Year

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - March 19, 2015) - The year 2015 marks the one hundredth birthday of Pulitzer Prize-winning author Herman Wouk, whose epic sagas of historical fiction have captivated a worldwide audience for decades. RosettaBooks, the leading independent eBook publisher, has published three of Wouk's later titles in eBook format: The Hope, The Glory and Inside, Outside.

Inside, Outside, first published in 1985, was the follow up novel after the enormous success of Wouk's bestsellers Winds of War and War and Remembrance. Weaving his innate sense of humor throughout this compelling tale of a Russian-Jewish immigrant family, the author uses his own personal experience to recreate an accurate portrayal of the struggles of the times. James Michener, writing for the New York Times Book Review wrote of Inside, Outside, "Mr. Wouk packs a wealth of evocative material into a single sentence… He has frequently proved his standing as one of America's premier storytellers."

The 1993-94 two-part saga, The Hope and The Glory, chronicles Israel's at once stormy and thrilling history. The story unfolds through the eyes of several generations as they live through, and participate in, such watershed moments in history as the Yom Kippur War, while readers are treated to an inside glimpse of historic figures such as Golda Meir and Anwar Sadat.

Wouk is famous for his meticulous research and years of painstaking effort to craft novels that are at once historically accurate, dramatically compelling and convey humanity through humor, love, and emotion. As respected author William Safire wrote for the New York Times upon the release of The Hope, "One of our best writers today -- a modern Charles Dickens -- is Herman Wouk… The Hope is not only a good read, but it also causes a good think."

"RosettaBooks is proud to continue the legacy of the Wouk collection by bringing these timeless titles to eBook format," said Arthur Klebanoof, CEO of RosettaBooks.

Wouk's books have been translated into 27 languages. He won the 1952 Pulitzer Prize for fiction for The Caine Mutiny, and has also been awarded numerous academic honors, including a degree from the Hebrew University in Jerusalem. In January 2001, UC San Diego established the Herman Wouk Chair of Modern Jewish Studies, and in 2008 he was given the first Library of Congress Lifetime Achievement Award for the Writing of Fiction.

Inside, Outside, The Hope and The Glory are available exclusively in the Amazon Kindle store for $8.99 each. Inside, Outside and The Hope eBooks are currently in a Kindle promotion through the end of March and discounted to $1.99.
