This amazing book follows the lives of two men, one a legendary architect, the other an infamous serial killer, as their lives intersect at the 1893 Chicago World's Fair. Larson also examines America itself: how the United States changed from isolationist ex-colonies to an imperial & cosmopolitan powerhouse, and what those changes mean for a country on the precipice of one of the most tumultuous centuries in human history.
