The Big Crowd

'“Baker takes an all-but-forgotten crime—the William O’Dwyer case—and builds a novel as big and as blustery as the city it portrays. This sprawling saga traces the spectacular rise and fall of two Irish immigrant brothers during the course of the first half of the twentieth century . . . Baker takes another juicy bite out of the Big Apple, demonstrating once again that nobody does old New York—in all its glamour and its grit—better.” —Booklist   “A compellingly imagined world.” —Scott Turow, The New York Times   “[This] thought-provoking, page-turning book gives all the good, old pleasures: if you read it on the subway, be prepared to miss your stop.” —Darin Strauss, author of Half a Life   A New York Times Editors’ Choice  '
