Praise for "Making History"

"[A] bright, engaging, learned novel . . . terrific."
--"The Washington Post
"
"Witty and eccentric . . . The ever astute actor/author asks the question: Does man make history or does history create the man? And [he] answers with a jolt of surprising insight."
--"Elle
"
""Making History" tears along like a cinematic thriller, building suspense with each fresh scene."
"--Baltimore Sun
"
"Exuberant . . . His characterization of Michael . . . is both brilliant and convincing."
--"Minneapolis Star-Tribune
"
"Part academic send-up, part zany screenplay, and part invented history, the novel dives headfirst into the trashbin of history and roots around with alternating elan and solemnity . . . Imaginative."
--"BookPage
"
"Clever, throught-provoking and very funny."
--"Library Journal"

"[Fry's] best novel yet . . . An extravagant, deeply questioning work of science fiction."
--"GQ "(UK)
