In Steven Millhauser's new novel set in turn-of-the-century New York City, we watch young entrepreneur Martin Dressler like many of his day make the ascent from hotel bellhop to builder of hotels. This mesmerizing novel brings us face to face with the ambiguity beneath the optimism of the American dream with a swiftness and intensity that are in themselves magnificently dreamlike.

Really, really didn't like this book-little insight, little understanding of relationships-didn't learn anything

A small book, with a big dreamer. Martin Dressler is an interesting character - ambitious. The author does a great job of putting you in New York - although it feels like the 1920s vs. late 1800s. Worth a read, and intriguing.
