Description: QUINN'S BOOK
This novel follows the adventures of the orphan Daniel Quinn in and around Albany, New York, in the mid-19th Century, across a crowded canvas of Albany's (and America's) history -- the rise and fall of upstate Dutch dynasties, kidnappings and murders, the human traffic of the Underground Railroad, pitched battles between the immigrant Irish and nativist Americans, vast oligarchical conspiracies, grand theatrical productions, sanguinary Civil War conflicts, and vicious draft riots -- all related with the full-throated rhetorical gusto of the day. The pages of Quinn's Book teem with characters of Dickensian vividness.
Author: William Kennedy
Condition: Like new, I'd say. There's just some light scuffing on the dust jacket.
