characters á eBook or Kindle ePUB ✓ Jess Walter The Cold Millions review ✓ 103 Jess Walter ✓ 3 characters The author of the #1 New York Times bestseller Beautiful Ruins delivers another “literary miracle” NPR a propulsive richly entertaining novel about two adventure seeking brothers the enemies who threaten them and the women who reveal to them an unjust world on the brink of upheavalThe Dolan brothers 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 dashing older brother Gig dreams of a better world fighting alongside other union men for fair pay and decent treatment En. Genre Historical FictionPublisher HarperCollinsPub Date Oct 6 2020 Millions is a richly entertaining historical novel that reconstructs the free speech riots that took place during the creation of the labor union during the early 1900s in Spokane Washington The novel is jam packed with real life people such as the passionate 19 year old union organizer Elizabeth Gurley Flynn known as the Rebel Girl the young labor lawyer Fred Moore and many others Historical fiction is my favorite genre because I must have been asleep in my school days For me there is nothing better than learning while being entertained Did you know that back then union activists were called Wobblys Dare I admit that I never heard of The Industrial Workers of the World IWW Well at least I did know who the union busting Pinkertons wereThe story reads like a John Steinbeck novel with strong shades of Grapes of Wrath and a hint of East of Eden We meet two colorful Irish American brothers at ages twenty one and sixteen Like many other Americans in those years they were anxious to work but there was no work to be found Think of the 1954 movie On The Waterfront A century later but the same situation where a hundred men are hoping to be randomly picked for a job that needs only a handful of workers To eat the brothers hop freight trains in search of employment Once the job is finished they move on to wherever else they think they might find work fair pay and decent treatment The boys are considered hobos and unwanted vagrants who sleep with the other unemployed shivering on the cold ground under the nighttime sky The cops usually beat and chase them out of town The title of the book is referring to the millions who are poor and starving while the tycoons and the ungodly wealthy in current days we refer to them as the 1% have no intention of sharing their wealth There is a scene where the younger brother finds himself in the unusual position of being a guest in a millionaire s house spoiler it is a set up The boy cries seeing that such homes exist while he has no home at all Written in pristine prose Millions features an unforgettable cast of Native Americans recent immigrants crooked cops complete with a real life shady police chief tramps suffragists socialists madams and murderers Not to mention Ursula the Great a fictional vaudeville singer who performs with a live cougar The dashing older brother has an ongoing sexual relationship with Ursula the Great The shy younger brother has a crush on Elizabeth Gurley Flynn told you that you would be entertained At times it can feel that the author has taken on too many isms but it doesn t detract from the story because all sorts of civil movements were going on in that period In reading this novel you too will get lost in a fascinating tale and may learn a thing or two about the Rebel Girl and other rebel voices of this time in American History which sounds eerily like the America we know today I received this Advance Review Copy ARC novel from the publisher at no cost in exchange for an honest review Find all my book reviews at

Am I biased because I get such a kick out of reading about Spokane Totally But still this is really excellent As historical fiction it s wonderful deeply researched with a rich sense of place and covering a time period and events that are a little less familiar than saythe French Resistance in WWII The themes of income ineuality police brutality and free speech feel disconcertingly relevant Mostly impressive though is Walter s writing It s not easy to pull off a multi voiced novel without the reader losing track of which character is narrating but Walter convincingly creates uniue nuanced characters and inhabits them with language that makes them easy to trackEdit Okay the I think about this the I have one ualm which is this the women in this book are pretty much universally Good They are brave they are generous they are kind There are good men too of course but there are also bad men and men who are neither good bad The above praise stands and I even think the women are nuanced and memorable but I wish they d been given shades of gray Thinking about it reminded me of a conversation had with Katrina Carrasco about The Best Bad Things and how consciously she made an effort to let the women in that book not just flawed but downright bad without being punished for it
