Reviews

"Wuthering Heights meets East of Eden."
--The Wall Street Journal

"Pasadena is like a grand opera. . . . [David] Ebershoff must be applauded for the grandness of his design, for grand characters, For grand setting, and . . . for his grand vision of Pasadena as the center of 'real history.'"
--Los Angeles Times Book Review

"Both a triumph of historical re-creation and a full-bodied romance . . . You feel that, if you were transported back to Pasadena in 1925, Ebershoff's book would enable you to find your way around perfectly."
--Baltimore Sun

"Ebershoff's crafting of characters is so sharp, so perfect, that we ache for most of them. . . . [He] has us in thrall, and every word he writes counts."
--Fort Worth Star-Telegram

"Full of detail and unerring language . . . magically evokes the rich and varied landscape of Southern California.'"
--The Boston Sunday Globe

"A luxurious tragedy . . . gorgeous, full of romance and disaster . . . Pasadena is a novel to get lost in."
--The Christian Science Monitor
