Read from August 31 to September 05, 2011

Another great historical novel by Kevin Baker that conveya a wonderful sense of the lives of turn-of-the-20th-century Jewish immigrants in New York City through the prism of that most American invention, the Dreamland amusement park on Coney Island. He also skillfully evokes the political machine that was Tammany Hall, and successfully imparts quite a lot of history while spinning a very absorbing tale.
