Review:

"A riveting read - big, bold, rambunctious and very rewarding" (Richard Russo, author of EMPIRE FALLS)

"Griesemer's energetic plotting and prose mirror the vigour of the age he describes" (New York Times)

"Ambition, failure, triumph, love, betrayal, farce, and spirt-conjuring - these are some of the subjects powerfully animated in this grand novel. John Griesemer is a masterful writer" (Joanna Scott, author of ARROGANCE)

"Griesemer's novel has the courage of ambition and deserves serious praise for that alone" (Time Out)

"Capacious, gutsy and gratifying" (Joseph O'Connor, author of STAR OF THE SEA)
