From the Publisher"Theodore Dreiser would have loved this story, but he couldn't have written it nearly so well as Michael Sokolove....[He] is a natural literary stylist, with the gifts of a social historian....This is a book for all seasons, not just summer."
— The New York Times Book Review
"A first-class work of sound reporting and inescapable conclusions."
— Roger Angell
"Anyone interested in the true story should read Michael Sokolove's...book on Rose. It's all there, the long gambling history, the sordid acquaintances, the relentless pursuit of gambling opportunities and, of course, the requisite obligations to the Mob."
— Bob Ryan, The Boston Globe
