EARLY RAVES FOR LEE IRBY’S ROLLICKING DEBUT

“Lee Irby instantly transports the reader back to bootleggers, brothels, and the Babe. A rousing and fun tale with characters aplenty to love and hate, 7,000 CLAMS is, as the Babe showed us 714 times, a home run.”
–David Baldacci, New York Times bestselling author of Absolute Power

“I always wondered what it would be like to spend spring training with Babe Ruth in St. Petersburg during his heyday with the New York Yankees. Not only does Lee Irby let you do that with great style, he takes you on a humdinger of an adventure filled with Prohibition mobsters, beautiful dolls, and a vicious psychopath from New Jersey. When I closed the book, I was sorry to have had to leave those characters behind.”
–Peter Golenbock, author of Dynasty and The Bronx Zoo

“7,000 CLAMS hits the jackpot–the story is rambunctious and entertaining and takes hold of you from the first paragraph, the writing is top-shelf, and the details, from white bucks to bathtub gin, are dead-on. Intricate, evocative, gritty and imaginative, this is, simply put, what good literature is all about. Kudos to Lee Irby for a job well done.”
–Martin Clark, author of The Many Aspects Of Mobile Home Living and Plain Heathen Mischief

“Irby’s 1920s come roaring off the page in a noir gem that showcases his historical expertise and one of the wildest but virtually ignored scenes in America–the anything-goes frontier of post-World War I Florida. The Babe himself rarely hit one this far.”
–TIM DORSEY, author of Torpedo Juice

“Lee Irby instantly transports the reader back to bootleggers, brothels, and the Babe. A rousing and fun tale.”
–David Baldacci
