Product description

Review

An enthralling masterpiece, epic in scale and human in detail... Blom is a masterly storyteller, with a taste for atmosphere and drama, continually finding new angles, details and juxtapositions... Tremendous -- Alwyn W. Turner * Daily Telegraph * Vivid as its individual parts are, Fracture succeeds in being more than a gathering of illuminating details... He makes a strong case and makes it elegantly. Like other good popular histories, Fracture will make the uninitiated think, and the initiated think twice. -- Kevin Jackson * Literary Review * Blom delivers an orderly sense of the maelstrom of incidents and ideas with panache. * Financial Times * [An] eminently readable tome full of splendid anecdotal detail. Mr. Blom's ability to convey a mood and to synthesize complex issues, is admirable... Anyone reading this book today in the context of our own culture of doubt will feel an immediate affinity to the anxious and even desperate celebration of life that it portrays * Wall Street Journal * A fluent, often entertaining account of the period * New York Times * [A] thoughtful portrait of the interwar years... this well-written account brings a refreshing clarity to such uncertain times. * Publishers Weekly (starred review) * A book to be absorbed, marveled at and admired for the wide range of research linking events and thoughts. * Kirkus Reviews *
