Reviews

"One of the greatest works of American literature...a timeless evocation of the allure, corruption and carelessness of wealth."
"-- The Times

""It is a marvellously suggestive novel... a parable of modern America, and by extension of modern life."
--A. N. Wilson", Daily Telegraph

""The first and greatest modern novel, it has beautiful women, lavish parties, romance, betrayal and murder woven together in an intricately structured plot. A prescient comment on the dying days of a gilded age that is brilliant entertainment with a very eloquent insight"."
