This just in

It has been nearly six months since The Mark Inside published, so I wasn’t particularly expecting any more reviews, which is why today’s write-up at Boing Boing is especially lovely.

[P]erhaps the best book I’ve ever read on con artists and con artistry…She writes with the lyricism of a magic realist, but with the rigor of a historian…[A]n engrossing and illuminating account of the moment at which speculation — not thrift — became the order of the day in America, and it’s thrilling and hilarious by turns and when you’re done, you understand the past and the present better.”

What a gift!
