After next week’s book event in Montclair, I’ll be heading to South Jersey for a Dec. 1 appearance at the Barnes and Noble bookstore in Marlton. The talk starts at 2 p.m. and, as you would expect, there’ll be books on hand to sell and sign.
American Dictators just got its first book review. It’s from the Star-Ledger, and it’s great:
“A smartly written chronicle studded with serio-comic vignettes, a narrative of greed and violence, and the thorough research of an author who clearly relishes his subject.”
“Hart mines this trove artfully and seductively. He knows Jerseyans have a certain fascination with Jersey-strong miscreants. American Dictators is enhanced by such tidbits as the explanation of kickbacks to each machine (Hague preferred the term “organization”) by municipal workers.”
