Referring here to an unsolved bombing on Wall Street at the outset of the Roaring Twenties, a time of great labor unrest often overlooked in pop history.
My friend Beverly Gage has written a terrific new book on the incident, The Day Wall Street Exploded: A Story of America in its First Age of Terror. The parallels to the present are striking.
Got a great write-up in this past Sunday’s New York Times. Totally worth a read.
