ABSTRACT
The article reports on the publication of the book "Magic Time," by Doug Marlette. The material was published in September 2006 by Farrar Straus and Giroux. The novel, supposes Marlette, is rooted in his having grown up as a white boy in Mississippi during the early 1960s, witnessing the story of the murder of three civil rights workers. Marlette recalls the participation of some of his family members in major historical events of the 20th century. He was motivated in his second novel to create the character of Carter Ransom.
