Description
A mild-mannered professor from Chicago, William Dodd became America's first ambassador to Hitler's Germany in 1933. In this nonfiction narrative that reads like a political thriller, from the author of The Devil in the White City, Thunderstruck, and Isaac's Storm, Dodd brings along his wife, son, and flamboyant daughter Martha, who is seduced by the parties and pomp and the infectious enthusiasm of the handsome young men of the Third Reich. But as evidence of Jewish persecution mounts, confirmed by chilling first-person testimony, her father telegraphs his concerns to a largely indifferent State Department back home. Suffused with the tense atmosphere of the period, and with unforgettable portraits of the bizarre Göring and the expectedly charming—yet wholly sinister—Goebbels, this gripping history lends an eyewitness perspective on events as they unfold in real time, and reveals the surprising nuance and complexity of the era.

"[The book] reads like a suspense novel, replete with colorful characters, both familiar and those previously relegated to the shadows. Like Christopher Isherwood's Berlin Stories or Victor Klemperer's Diaries, In the Garden of Beasts is an on-the-ground documentary of a society going mad in slow motion."—Chicago Sun-Times
