America in the 1920s was a place of drama, tension, and hedonism. It glittered and seduced: jazz, flappers, the birth of Hollywood, and a glamorous gangster-led crime scene flourishing under prohibition.
But it was also punctuated by momentous events. such as the political show trials and the huge Ku Klux Klan march. It also produced a splendid array of writers, musicians, and film stars, from F. Scott Fitzgerald to Bessie Smith and Charlie Chaplin.
This is an exhilarating portrait of the era of invention, glamour and excess.
"[A]chieves its obvious, if unstated aim of being an enjoyable readable romp through the period." (Telegraph)
