The newest novel from a #1 New York Times bestselling author, featuring an original essay and a group discussion guide!

I was been searching for new books for the holiday season on Barnes and Noble when I came across a feature for The Cold Millions (Barnes & Noble Book Club Edition) by Jess Walter. It will be the next B&N Book Club Pick, which I generally like to follow along with and discuss. This book club edition comes with an original essay written by the author and a reading group discussion guide, which will be perfect for my friends!

As stated on the Barnes and Noble website, the summary for The Cold Millions is:

"The Dolans live by their wits, jumping freight trains and lining up for day work at crooked job agencies. While sixteen-year-old Rye yearns for a steady job and a home, his older brother, Gig, dreams of a better world, fighting alongside other union men for fair pay and decent treatment. Enter Ursula the Great, a vaudeville singer who performs with a live cougar and introduces the brothers to a far more dangerous creature: a mining magnate determined to keep his wealth and his hold on Ursula.

Dubious of Gig’s idealism, Rye finds himself drawn to a fearless nineteen-year-old activist and feminist named Elizabeth Gurley Flynn. But a storm is coming, threatening to overwhelm them all, and Rye will be forced to decide where he stands. Is it enough to win the occasional battle, even if you cannot win the war?

An intimate story of brotherhood, love, sacrifice, and betrayal set against the panoramic backdrop of an early twentieth-century America that eerily echoes our own time, The Cold Millions offers a kaleidoscopic portrait of a nation grappling with the chasm between rich and poor, between harsh realities and simple dreams. Featuring an unforgettable cast of cops and tramps, suffragists and socialists, madams and murderers, it is a tour de force from a “writer who has planted himself firmly in the first rank of American authors” (Boston Globe)."
