Laced with witty anecdotes and sparkling epigrams, Beer's remarkable cultural history encompasses the wild panoply of the Gilded Age's last decade, from high society to the closing of the West. Bracketed by Emerson's death and Teddy Roosevelt's presidential election, The Mauve Decade sports a historical cast featuring Henry Adams, William James, Ambrose Bierce, Louisa May Alcott and the Dalton gang.
