Editorial Reviews

Dallas Morning News
Mr. Jennings keeps the pages turning.
Los Angeles Times
Epic, finely wrought, erudite, richly comic, delightfully bawdy and highly dramatic. Spangle is impressive in its sheer mass and richness, in the enthusiasm and energy of its telling, in the obvious pleasure the author takes in his work.
New York Times Book Review
Jennings is the best among our historical novelists.
