About the Book

Last Proud Gallop, a novel by Gerald F. Sweeney, explores how men and women love differently.

The Lost Generation is emerging. It's 1919 and the Jazz Age is about to erupt. Six vibrant youths seek fulfillment in the postwar time-lapse between the demise of Victorian values and the rise of the Flapper, all set against the wealthy and power-driven background of Long Island's polo set, glittering hunt balls, the early Hamptons, and Manhattan in its flower.

It's a love story between Tad Hancock, a politically active reformer and war hero and a sexually liberated firebrand named Pamela, a true American courtesan.

The subplot involves the support and opposition they receive from competing factions of Mayfair's socially and financially entrenched.


Last Proud Gallop is very well written. the characters are so well developed that they don't often have to be identified in dialogue exchanges.
- -John Goodspeed,The Star Democrat
This is an uneven but appealing novel, with some fine phrasing and thought provoking observations on the Jazz Age, particularly about how class affects democracy and why The Lost Generation squandered its idealism with such mad abandon.
- Joan Baum, The Independent Traveler Watchman
Although long gone, the hazy era rewakens in Sweeney's narrative with dynamic and dimensional characters with strong, timeless voices.
