"By far his best and most enthralling work of novelistic history….Powerful,
poignant…a transportingly true story."--The New York Times"Tells
a fascinating story brilliantly well."--Financial Times"Highly
compelling...Larson brings Berlin roaring to life in all its glamour and
horror...a welcome new chapter in the vast canon of World War II."--Christian
Science Monitor"Terrific."--Los Angeles Times“A
stunning work of history.”--Newsweek“Larson has meticulously
researched the Dodds’ intimate witness to Hitler’s ascendancy and created an
edifying narrative of this historical byway that has all the pleasures of a
political thriller….a fresh picture of these terrrible events.”--The New York
Times Book Review
"Larson has taken a brilliant idea and turned it
into a gripping book."--Women's Wear Daily"Harrowingly
suspenseful." Vogue.com"A gripping, deeply-intimate narrative
with a climax that reads like the best political thriller, where we are stunned
with each turn of the page."--Louisville Courier
Journal"Electrifying reading...fascinating." Minneapolis
“Larson’s latest chronicle of history has as much
excitement as a thriller novel, and it’s all the more thrilling because it’s all
true.”--Asbury Park Press"A superb book...nothing less than
masterful."--Toronto Globe and Mail“Even though we know how it
will end — the book's climax, the Night of the Long Knives, being just the
beginning, this is a page-turner, full of flesh and blood people and monsters
too, whose charms are particularly disturbing.”--Portland
Herald"Larson succeeds brilliantly…offers a fascinating window into
the year when the world began its slow slide into war."--Maclean's
Magazine"Erik Larson tackles this outstanding period of history as
fully and compellingly as he portrayed the events in his bestseller, THE DEVIL
IN THE WHITE CITY. With each page, more horrors are revealed, making it
impossible to put down. IN THE GARDEN OF BEASTS reads like the true thriller it
is."--BookReporter.com"Larson's strengths as a storyteller
have never been stronger than they are here, and this story is far more
important than either "The Devil in the White City" or "Thunderstruck." How the
United States dithered as Hitler rose to power is a cautionary tale that bears
repeating, and Larson has told it masterfully."--Cleveland Plain
Dealer“Reads like an elegant thriller…utterly compelling… marvelous
stuff. An excellent and entertaining book that deserves to be a bestseller, and
probably will be.”—The Washington Post
“Larson's scholarship is
impressive, but it's his pacing and knack for suspense that elevates the book
from the matter-of-fact to the sublime.”--Pittsburgh Review“A
master at writing true tales as riveting as fiction.”--People (3 1/2
stars) "Larson has done it again, expertly weaving together a fresh new
narrative from ominous days of the 20th century."--Associated
Press""Mesmerizing...cinematic, improbable yet
true."--Philadelphia Inquirer"[L]ike slipping slowly into a
nightmare, with logic perverted and morality upended….It all makes for a
powerful, unsettling immediacy."--Bruce Handy, Vanity
Fair“Dazzling….Reads like a suspense novel, replete with colorful
characters, both familiar and those previously relegated to the shadows. Like
Christopher Isherwood’s Berlin Stories or Victor Klemperer’s Diaries, IN THE
GARDEN OF BEASTS is an on-the-ground documentary of a society going mad in slow
motion."--The Chicago Sun-Times“[G]ripping, a nightmare narrative
of a terrible time. It raises again the question never fully answered about the
Nazi era—what evil humans are capable of, and what means are necessary to cage
the beast.”--The Seattle Times"In this mesmerizing portrait of
the Nazi capital, Larson plumbs a far more diabolical urban cauldron than in his
bestselling The Devil in the White City...a vivid, atmospheric panorama of the
Third Reich and its leaders, including murderous Nazi factional infighting,
through the accretion of small crimes and petty thuggery."--Publishers
“Larson is a marvelous writer...superb at creating characters with a few
short strokes.”—New York Times Book Review
Erik Larson has
been widely acclaimed as a master of narrative non-fiction, and in his new book,
the bestselling author of Devil in the White City turns his hand to a
remarkable story set during Hitler’s rise to power.
The time is 1933,
the place, Berlin, when William E. Dodd becomes America’s first ambassador to
Hitler’s Germany in a year that proved to be a turning point in
A mild-mannered professor from Chicago, Dodd brings along his
wife, son, and flamboyant daughter, Martha. At first Martha is entranced by the
parties and pomp, and the handsome young men of the Third Reich with their
infectious enthusiasm for restoring Germany to a position of world prominence.
Enamored of the “New Germany,” she has one affair after another, including with
the suprisingly honorable first chief of the Gestapo, Rudolf Diels. But as
evidence of Jewish persecution mounts, confirmed by chilling first-person
testimony, her father telegraphs his concerns to a largely indifferent State
Department back home. Dodd watches
with alarm as Jews are attacked, the press is censored, and drafts of
frightening new laws begin to circulate. As that first year unfolds and the
shadows deepen, the Dodds experience days full of excitement, intrigue,
romance—and ultimately, horror, when a climactic spasm of violence and murder
reveals Hitler’s true character and ruthless ambition.
Suffused with the
tense atmosphere of the period, and with unforgettable portraits of the bizarre
Göring and the expectedly charming--yet wholly sinister--Goebbels, In the
Garden of Beasts lends a stunning, eyewitness perspective on events as they
unfold in real time, revealing an era of surprising nuance and complexity. The
result is a dazzling, addictively readable work that speaks volumes about why
the world did not recognize the grave threat posed by Hitler until Berlin, and
Europe, were awash in blood and terror.
