The Museum of Extraordinary Things by Alice Hoffman
The Museum of Extraordinary Things

Elizabeth Rosner, May 11, 2014

The lush prose and exquisitely nuanced characters make their own worthy arguments for readers to treasure this novel. But it is Hoffman's use of history that enlarges the story to a level I consider both irresistible and important. With heartbreaking vividness, this masterful writer reminds us that the tragedy of the fire at the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory, and its complicated aftermath, truly changed the course of all of our lives.

Brilliant, original, timely. By turns hilarious and heartbreaking --- but always devastatingly honest and relentlessly compelling. I've recommended this book countless times and will continue to do so.
