City of Scoundrels - new book on 1919 Chicago

Looks interesting: http://www.nytimes.com/2012/08/12/books/review/city-of-scoundrels-by-gary-krist.html

Anyone read it?

Hi Can you take a look at a new website we have created and give some feedback or send to any friends that might find useful

Nope, but the review had me convinced before the burning airship hit the Loop! But it also reminded me of a short story about the 1919 race riots in Chicago I read in high school. I’m almost certain it was in English class, so I’m guessing it was probably a fictionalized account. Anybody have any clue as to what I read?

Sorry, no. Here’s the Wiki article on the crash, though: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wingfoot_Air_Express_crash
