Pressestimmen

"Engrossing . . . exceedingly well documented . . . utterly fascinating." - Chicago Tribune "A dynamic, enveloping book. . . . Relentlessly fuses history and entertainment to give this nonfiction book the dramatic effect of a novel. . . . It doesn't hurt that this truth is stranger than fiction." - The New York Times "So good, you find yourself asking how you could not know this already." - Esquire "Another successful exploration of American history. . . . Larson skillfully balances the grisly details with the far-reaching implications of the World's Fair." - USA Today "As absorbing a piece of popular history as one will ever hope to find." - San Francisco Chronicle "Paints a dazzling picture of the Gilded Age and prefigure the American century to come." - Entertainment Weekly "A wonderfully unexpected book. . . Larson is a historian . . . with a novelist's soul." - Chicago Sun-Times
