DayRay Literary Press is pleased to be working with International
Bestselling Novelist Jack Engelhard, author of Indecent Proposal which has been
translated into more than 22 languages and turned into a blockbuster movie starring Robert Redford and Demi Moore.
Contemporaries have hailed novelist Jack Engelhard as “the last Hemingway” and of being “a writer without peer and
the conscience of us all.” The New York Times commended the economy of his prose... “precise, almost clinical
language.” His bestselling novel Indecent Proposal made him internationally famous as the foremost chronicler
of moral dilemmas and of topics dealing with temptation. Works that followed won him an even greater following, such
as Escape From Mount Moriah, his book of memoirs that won awards for writing and for film. Engelhard writes a
weekly column for the Washington Times.
||Jack Engelhard's new novel News Anchor Sweetheart is written
in language that is economical, hard-boiled and fast-paced to uncover through the art of fiction the naked truth about
a TV news personality who resembles someone we all know. Engelhard dishes the scoop on this "queen of Chick Power with
legs to die for." What's it like to live under the glare of the spotlight, and to love after the lights go down? This
novel must be read for the thrill of great reading and to know our culture. As one reviewer put it, "Engelhard zeroes
in on a news anchor who resembles Megyn Kelly. It's fiction, but WOW!"...

Beautifully written...grittily honest...delightfully charming...
Readers have spoken. They wanted more from this masterpiece. So 10 new chapters have been added in what many
cite as among the finest coming-of-age memoir ever written. Legendary novelist Jack Engelhard (Indecent Proposal)
recovers the past with fresh gems in this award-winning book, honored, later in film, for its unique, minimalist
style that delivers absolute brilliance. Each short chapter sparkles and shines in this little memoir that could.
Torn from their homes in France at the onset of the Nazi invasion, and after a harrowing escape across the
Pyrenees, the Engelhard family -- Noah, Ida, Sarah and Jack -- must begin lives as refugees in a new world -- first
Canada (Montreal), later the United States. The experiences that shaped young Jack Engelhard were those that
profoundly changed the world... Click here to read more
Jack Engelhard’s The Days of the Bitter End may well be
the definitive word on the 1960s. This is a landmark book, masterfully evocative. Engelhard once again proves

left an indelible mark on our culture to this day. Read it and laugh, read it and weep, because it’s all here,
the way it was back then, the age of innocence soon to be shattered, but then reborn. This is what it was like to
be young, every moment an adventure. Brilliant... Click here to read more
Exceptionally brilliant, masterful and rewarding – and here it is from
the mighty pen of novelist Jack Engelhard, the highs and lows, warts and all of making it as a writer. Here the
sweetness of success is given its proper place, as are the moments of failure and despair, and you will never forget
the refrain, especially if you're a writer, "Nobody cares." Engelhard opens the door into the world of New York
publishing with equal access into the world of gambling and casinos. Slot Attendant is a triumph, and
an absolute must-read... Click here to read more
Pure Engelhard gem. In this one, The Girls of Cincinnati,
he's given us something never thought possible, a coming-of-age saga that's also a sizzling thriller. The plot here
is riveting. The dialogue sparkles. What's it about? It's about life. Anyone who's been in love - especially love
that appears to be out of reach - will understand what's going on between Engelhard's two heroes, Eli Brilliant
and Stephanie Eaton. Anyone who feels the approach of menace will understand what these two must endure when a
crazed woman appears on the scene, threatening them both with "a fate worse than death." ...

Jack Engelhard has produced a heroic work of literature. This is a superb, gutsy novel.
The Bathsheba Deadline is a newsroom thriller ripped from the headlines. The present day action takes place in a
Manhattan newsroom where three leading journalists find themselves caught in a sizzling three-way love triangle that may lead to
murder in the Middle East (Israel). You will never forget Jay Garfield and you absolutely will never forget Lyla. Politics and sex
mixed in with the war on terror provoke life-and-death rifts within the editorial staff. Journalists with the power to influence
public opinion have lost their neutrality and have taken sides. Readers are taken behind the scenes and into the newsrooms where
they are shown how headlines are made and often manipulated to favor one side over another. Media bias usually against Israel? Read
all about it in Engelhard's stirring pages. The war for survival in a New York City newsroom mirrors the clash of civilizations here,
in the Middle East, and around the world...

The hard-knocking clarity of his prose is astonishing... Jack Engelhard
is back, and in The Prince of Dice he dazzles us once again as he has in such novels as Indecent
Proposal and The Bathsheba Deadline, to name but two of his works that testify to Engelhard's genius.
Who is Julian Rothschild? Julian is the star of Engelhard's Prince of Dice and from page one to the
end you will love this guy. He is a hero styled after the lonely gunman who comes to wipe out evil and save the town.
Only Julian carries no guns. He carries a pair of dice. These are his weapons. He is a gambler, but he is different.
Julian has been blessed with a gift. He has the magic touch. He can't lose. Something happened when he found himself
in the Sinai Desert. Something holy. His gambling, he feels, is directed by a Divine Hand. Against a world that tries
to bring him down, Julian must keep proving himself, until finally it's a matter of life or death...

It was 1973. It was the golden age of Secretariat and the days of Arcaro and
Shoemaker... but it was one rider above them all who drew the racing world's rapt attention. That was Walter Blum. To count
himself among the truly great he would have to win the 4,000th race of his career. He needed six more. That pursuit and so
much more about the racetrack inspired international bestselling novelist Jack Engelhard to produce a factual journalistic
account of what it's really like behind the scenes. His book, The Horsemen, became an instant classic.
The New York Times devoted a full spread on its Sports front page to excerpt and celebrate the book. The Horsemen
continues to draw acclaim from readers throughout the racing world and from readers who simply enjoy a great book...
