A Moment In The Sun by John Sayles

A Moment in The Sun by John Sayles

This is really an incredible novel, though at almost 1000 pages of dense historical detail and with a large cast of characters, it’s not a book for everyone. As someone who very much enjoys historical epics, I loved this book. Documenting the intersection of class warfare, racism and American imperialism during the gilded age, this book is so rich in its historic detail that it almost feels like Sayles was writing from personal experience. The book is also incredibly well written and this, combined with the scope and detail left me in awe of Sayles’ ability on almost every page.
