From the Publisher
Annotation In this elegantly written history of a world that in some ways resembles our own, Lucy Moore writes vividly of the Roaring Twenties, profiling the colorful personalities who dominated the period (Capone, Lindbergh, Hemingway, Scott and Zelda, Bessie Smith) and narrating the events that led to the Wall Street crash that ended the era abruptly. Told by a historian, ANYTHING GOES has the page-turning excitement of a sharply observed novel.
Editors Note Profiles key period figures against a backdrop of major events, providing coverage of topics ranging from Prohibition and the birth of Hollywood to the political show trials of Sacco and Vanzetti and the Ku Klux Klan march down Pennsylvania Avenue.
