[Starred Review] Lively ... wonderful ... mesmerizing. Kirkus "David Pietrusza isn't just one of the best historians writing these days, he's one of the best storytellers--and his latest masterpiece, 1932, is another home run." --Matt Lewis, columnist, Daily Beast 1932 represents a rare combination of scholarly rigor and relentless drama.
