Praise

“Rewarding . . . vivid tableaus and high drama . . . immigrant dreams and desires on the scrappy streets of Five Points.”
–The New York Times

“Engaged with history, artfully structured, told with dashing wit . . . full of passions and perils, desire and deceit . . . Metropolis teems with imagined life, as a good page-turner should.”
–San Jose Mercury News

“Brawny, old-school storytelling . . . a novel as strong and heady as the brew [Gaffney’s] rakes and roustabouts swill by the pint.”
–Newsweek

“Metropolis is more than a literary page-turner; it is also a coming-of-age story for a young and strapping New York.”
–Vanity Fair

“Engrossing . . . fraught with suspense.”
–Elle
