Reviews

A gem of a book . . . No one since [Henry] James has written with such ease and grace about the era of excess as Kaplan. (Megan Marshall, author of The Peabody Sisters) Mr. Kaplan, a dazzling stylist, is perfectly suited to his subject: what Henry James lovingly called hotel civilization . . . [A] splendid book about a bygone age that has not quite gone away. (The New York Sun)
