Review

Golden Hill possesses a fluency and immediacy, a feast of the senses.

-- "Washington Post"

A fast-paced romp that keeps its eyes on the moral conundrums of America.

-- "New Yorker"

Delirious storytelling backfilled with this much intelligence is a rare and happy sight.

-- "New York Times"

Gorgeously crafted...Spufford's sprawling recreation here is pitch perfect.

-- "NPR"

Nothing short of a masterpiece.

-- " Guardian (London)" --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
