"Jennings is the best among our historical novelists." --The New York 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." --Los Angeles Times
"Mr. Jennings keeps the pages turning." --The Dallas Morning NewsAbout the Author:
Gary Jennings is known for his intensive research which often includes rigorous and sometimes hazardous travels-exploring every corner of Mexico for his Aztec novels, retracing the numerous wanderings of Marco Polo for The Journeyer, joining nine different circuses for Spangle, and roaming the Balkans to do Raptor.
