Review quote

"A SUPERB, BRILLIANT EVOCATION . . . Satisfying in its length, rich in its complication, intriguing in its characters, and above all, revealing of its time and place."
--Los Angeles Times "[GOLDMAN] SUCCEEDS WHERE MOST NOVELISTS SINCE THOMAS WOLFE HAVE FAILED. He carves a huge piece out of the heart of New York, and it has life, power, beauty and truth."
--San Francisco Chronicle
