KIRKUS REVIEW

An omnium gatherum collects from some 200 books annals which the editor has chosen because of their ""moment of truth"", defined as a particular moment of intense fear and elation. A sampling includes Gerard's 17th century escape from the Tower of London, Casanova's during the Inquisition etc. Throughout, there is the high charge of obstinacy and originality of a special type of adventure.
