The Day Wall Street Exploded

No, not any of the crashing and gnashing we’ve seen of late.

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.
