'Absolutely fizzing . . . I could not put it down . . . Moore has the most wonderful eye for detail and a brilliant sense of human character. The Most entertaining work of history you are likely to read in a long while.'A. N. WilsonBracketed by the catastrophes of the Great War and the Wall Street Crash, 1920s America was a place of drama, tension and hedonism. It glittered as it seduced: jazz musicians, flappers, wild all-night parties, the birth of Hollywood, and a glamorous world of gangsters all flourished under prohibition. But the period was also punctuated by momentous historical events - the political show trials of Sacco and Vanzetti; the huge Ku Klax Klan march down Washington DC's Pennsylvania Avenue - and produced a sparkling array of writers, musicians and film stars, from F. Scott Fitzgerald to Bessie Smith, Charlie Chaplin to Mary Pickford.'A varied and dazzling portrait gallery of crooks and film stars, boxers and presidents, each brilliantly delineated and coloured in by a historian with a novelist's relish for human foibles.'Christopher Hart, Sunday Times'Like the champagne-immersed age she portrays, Moore's book effervesces with the detail of this fascinating story.'Juliet Nicolson, Evening Standard
