Über diesen Titel

Inhaltsangabe:

Focusing on less sensational times in U.S. history (non-war and pre-Depression) "James Sturm's America "draws a portrait of the people and their dreams that make up this country. Comprised of three chapters--"The Revival," "Hundreds of Feet Below Daylight," and "The Golem's Mighty Swing"--the stories grow as the country grows: from pioneers searching for a place to call home to ghost towns gutted by greed and racism to the distractions and fantasies of popular entertainment.

Rezension:

" Sturm's prose is as elegantly understated as his line work. And every now and then he throws the heater: ' They've been waiting for their Messiah a thousand years, ' says one opponent. ' So they know how to wait on a curveball.' A- ." "-- Entertainment Weekly
"" Luminous . . . The revival, as Sturm gleaned through careful research, offered an oasis of companionship, entertainment and brief salvation from the land itself. One can see how Americans . . . would have yearned for a message that this dangerous, lonely place was actually part of some divine plan." "-- The New York Times Book Review
"" Employing thick lines, minimal detail and simple prose storytelling, Sturm gracefully summons the seedy, often dangerous baseball world of the 1920s." "-- The Washington Post"
