Empire: A Tale of Obsession, Betrayal, and the Battle for an American Icon by Mitchell Pacelle

Empire THE UNTOLD STORY BEHIND THE BATTLE FOR THE ULTIMATE PRIZE Great business writing and even greater gossip . . . [Pacelle] has great fun with the bizarre cast of characters who plot and connive against one another in what reads like a cross between film noir and a Harold Robbins novel. -Publishers Weekly Empire is a fascinating and entertaining biography of one of the twentieth centurys greatest landmarks, complete with a cast of unsavory characters with egos and ambitions to match the Manhattan skyline. Pacelle gives a fine architectural and economic history of America since the Depression, but his lucid prose and gift for narrative make the book read like a first-rate mystery novel. -Ross King, author of Brunelleschis Dome: How a Renaissance Genius Reinvented Architecture In his well-crafted chronicle, Mitchell Pacelle captures the manic ambitions and outsized egos of the real estate tycoons who would own Americas ultimate trophy property. -James Hirsch, author of Hurricane: The Miraculous Journey of Rubin Carter
