Erik Larson’s new book, In The Garden of Beasts, is receiving stellar consumer reviews and is currently in the #1 spot on Amazon’s sale rankings.

In the book, Larson tells the story of Hitler’s rise to power in Germany through the eyes of the daughter of the American ambassador to Germany, Martha Dodd, a device Deirdre Donahue describes as “Carrie Bradshow in Berlin.” But rather than trivialize the story, she says, it helps to bring history alive.

Holds are rising rapidly in many libraries.
