A New York Times Editor's Choice
"Bandbox" is a hugely successful magazine - a glamorous monthly cocktail of 1920s obsessions from the stock market to radio to gangland murder - edited by the bombastic Jehoshaphat "Joe" Harris. The defection of Harris's most ambitious prote ge has plunged "Bandbox" into a death struggle with a new competitor on the newsstand. But there's more to come in this dazzling, hilarious novel that captures the heart and soul of New York in the Jazz Age.
Available only in Americana 4 and 5.
