As Mauro reads his history of the 1939 New York City World’s Fair, listeners will experience the magnificence of this amazing cultural event. Mauro takes his time developing the subplots detailed in the subtitle; first, listeners hear about the conception, creation, and completion of the buildings and monuments of the fair. Grover Whalen spent years raising funds and creating a magnificent view of the future at Flushing Meadows Park. But the best-laid plans don’t necessarily guarantee success. Mauro brings the dreams, hopes, and failures of the fair to life, with the Great Depression in the background and war in Europe looming ahead. Mauro’s cultured voice brings to life the excitement and tension of a remarkable event and period. M.B.K. © AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine [Published: DECEMBER 2010]
