"On stage, just three actors perform it; on the page, it's a
panoramic circus, and ravishing, rollicking reading all the way."
--Booklist (starred review)
"Written as a poetic and dramatic song, it dazzles with intelligence and humor." --Le Figaro Litteraire
Massini is the real thing. His writing is smart, electric, light on its feet. (...) "The Lehman Trilogy" lives on the page because of its human moments: the wooing of spouses; the scandals and feuds; the perilous attempts to climb the class ladder.--New York Times
