Editorial Reviews

Review

The Cold Millions is a literary unicorn: a book about socio-economic disparity that’s also a page-turner, a postmodern experiment that reads like a potboiler, and a beautiful, lyric hymn to the power of social unrest in American history. It’s funny and harrowing, sweet and violent, innocent and experienced; it walks a dozen tightropes. Jess Walter is a national treasure.” (Anthony Doerr, author of All the Light We Cannot See)

“Walter puts forth his most ambitious work yet, solidifying his place in the contemporary canon as one of our most gifted builders of fictional worlds....  It's often said that a novel contains the world; Walter brings new meaning to this phrase, peopling The Cold Millions with vaudeville stars, hobos, suffragists, tycoons, union agitators, policemen, and dozens of other vibrant characters. Warm and deeply humane, this transporting novel is a staggering achievement from a landmark writer.” (Esquire)

“Jess Walter is a superb storyteller. His plot rolls on at a steady pace. His ear for dialogue, whatever the character, is acute. He knows when to amp up the prose with a telling metaphor…. As polished and hard as a diamond, The Cold Millions reminds us of America’s tempestuous past and suggests that all this is anything but past.” (Dan Cryer, Boston Globe)

“Riveting…. With an expansive cast that includes anti-capitalist firebrands, menacing tycoons, a coalition of multifaceted, multiethnic itinerant workers and sundry ‘killers, detectives and anarchists,’ this book captures the audacity, promise, ugliness and beauty of American life.” (Kevin Canfield, Minneapolis Star Tribune)

“Stunning…. The Cold Millions feels timed perfectly to this moment of stark income inequality, where the crevasse between billionaires and workers widens and activism increases…. Walter marshals a motley, fascinating cast of characters so finely drawn that they lift from the page…. I haven’t encountered a more satisfying and moving novel about the struggle for workers’ rights in America.” (San Francisco Chronicle)

“The Beautiful Ruins author has produced another layered, multi-character panorama.”  (Vogue)

“Another home run for the author of Beautiful Ruins.” (Kim Hubbard, People Magazine)

“Another triumph for the versatile novelist behind Beautiful Ruins.”  (Washington Post)

The Cold Millions will break your heart and make you hopeful at the same time.” (Seattle Times)

"A story of brotherhood, deceit, love and sacrifice that will have you holding your breath with every turn of the page." (CNN)
