Product Details

Praise

Wuthering Heights meets East of Eden.”
—The Wall Street Journal

Pasadena is like a grand opera. . . . [David] Ebershoff must be applauded for the grandness of his design, for grand characters, For grand setting, and . . . for his grand vision of Pasadena as the center of ‘real history.’”
—Los Angeles Times Book Review

“Both a triumph of historical re-creation and a full-bodied romance . . . You feel that, if you were transported back to Pasadena in 1925, Ebershoff’s book would enable you to find your way around perfectly.”
—Baltimore Sun

“Ebershoff’s crafting of characters is so sharp, so perfect, that we ache for most of them. . . . [He] has us in thrall, and every word he writes counts."
—Fort Worth Star-Telegram


“Full of detail and unerring language . . . magically evokes the rich and varied landscape of Southern California.’”
—The Boston Sunday Globe

“A luxurious tragedy . . . gorgeous, full of romance and disaster . . . Pasadena is a novel to get lost in.”
—The Christian Science Monitor
