Description
A poet and cultural historian as well as the editor in chief for the Library of America, Geoffrey O'Brien crafts an unforgettable true story of greed, corruption, and madness that came to light in 1873, when 18-year old Frank Walworth of Saratoga Springs, New York, shot his father Mansfield and turned himself in to police.

"Reviewers unanimously agreed that The Fall of the House of Walworth, billed as a true-crime story, is an enthralling book and that O'Brien is uniquely qualified to write it. Critics were universally impressed with the way O'Brien takes a 19th-century family that most people have probably never heard of and not only builds a gripping, multilayered, and thoroughly researched narrative about them but also uses them to illuminate much of their rapidly changing period in American history. O'Brien's background as a cultural historian, literary critic, and poet are all brought to bear in this impressive achievement."Bookmarks Magazine
