Translated from the Italian.

The novel in verse that inspired the sensational West End and Off-Broadway play, The Lehman Trilogy is the story of a family and a company that changed the world. On a cold September morning in 1844 a young man from Bavaria stands on a New York dockside, dreaming of a new life in the new world.

Sensing opportunity in the Deep South, he opens a textile shop in Alabama, and then he and his two brothers begin investing in anything and everything that will turn a profit, from cotton to coal to railroads to oil to airplanes. 163 years later, the Lehman Brothers firm spectacularly collapses into bankruptcy, and triggers the largest financial crisis in history. Spanning three generations and 150 years, The Lehman Trilogy is a moving epic that tells the story of modern capitalism through the saga of the Lehman brothers and their descendants.

Surprising and exciting, brilliant and inventive, Stefano Massini's masterpiece - like Hamilton - is a story of immigration, ambition, and success.

It is the story of America itself, from a daring and original perspective.
