    Writing in the Washington Post, John Freeman Gill describes Brendan Mathews’ debut novel as an ‘affable’ work with the ‘possibility of dramatic transformation amid historical ferment’ at its heart. The World of Tomorrow’s title is drawn from the theme of the World’s Fair (held in New York in 1939), and its rollicking plot is largely set in the same city during the 1930s. It takes a courageous writer to follow in the steps of EL Doctorow, who used the same setting for his finest novel, 1985’s World’s Fair, but Mathews doesn’t filch, recounting the story of Irish redheaded rogue Francis Dempsey and his adventures through Ireland and America with alacrity. Mathews is widely acknowledged as an American writer to watch, and The World of Tomorrow is an excellent introduction to his exciting work.
