Winner of the William Goyen Prize for Fiction Eugene Garber's masterpiece of the imagination takes readers on a rich fictional odyssey that is a meditation on the American character and experience. Moving back and forth in time, populated by memorable characters that include Henry Adams, Isadora Duncan, and Lincoln Steffans, the story follows the historian's quest to find the American woman, whose vitality has been all but written out of history by puritan consciousness.

"Eugene Garber, casting himself as both Herodotus and Ned Buntline, has elevated American history in the second half of the nineteenth century to the grandeur of a legend about a mighty civilization of thousands of years ago." --Kurt Vonnegut "The Historian is an extraordinary work of the imagination, six character-linked historical 'fantasies' that capture the comically hubristic heart of the American experience in a compellingly witty and elegant prose. A wonderful book. Eugene Garber is quietly emerging as one of the most gifted and original of the metafictionists." --Robert Coover
