Overview
"What a project, and what a book A work that took four years to write and yet bears the stamp of gusto from the first page to last. A full-bodied tale of birth and death, of love and hate, of fighting, mating, scheming, drifting-of overbearing lords and ancient gentlemen, simpering dames, passionate women of several colors, murder, rapine, revenge, long voyages, desperate encounters. . . . A full adventurous romance, rich in action, heightened by poetic glamor." - Harry Hansen in The New York World-Telegram. The tale moves swiftly through the latter years of the Eighteenth and the early decades of the Nineteenth Centuries to delve deep amid the roots of the modern era. Anthony Adverse - begotten in France, born in the Alps, raised in Italy and flung by fortune to the West Indies, Africa, and finally to America-unlocks with the key of action the diverting experiences of his journey in body and thought from one hemisphere to another. Filled with memorable events, with affairs of the heart, the purse, and the mind in many lands and famous cities, this huge novel with hundreds of colorful people is interesting every step of the way. It has gusto, wise humor, beauty, and pathos. "Anthony Adverse will lay hold upon a vast multitude of readers and grip them fast by its fascinations. For it is a living book; if vibrates; it sings itself into the very marrow of the bones."- Paul Jordan Smith in The Los Angeles Times.
