Praise for E. L. Doctorow
“An extraordinarily deft, lyrical, rich novel that catches the spirit of the country . . . in a fluid musical way that is as original as it is satisfying.”The New Yorker
“As exhilarating as a deep breath of oxygen . . . a remarkable achievement . . . Doctorow has found a fresh way to orchestrate the themes of American innocence, energy, and ambition.”Newsweek
“An extraordinary fictional tapestry . . . Once in there’s no possible way out except through the last page.”The New Republic
The March
“Spellbinding . . . a ferocious re-imagining of the past that returns it to us as something powerful and strange.”Time
“Doctorow [is] always astonishing . . . He dreams himself backward . . . into the creation myth of the Republic itself, as if to assume the prophetic role of such nineteenth-century writers as Emerson, Melville, Whitman, and Poe.”Harper’s
“An Iliad-like portrait of war as a primeval human affliction . . . [welds] the personal and the mythic into a thrilling and poignant story.”The New York Times
Homer & Langley
“Beautiful and haunting . . . one of literature’s most unlikely picaresques, a road novel in which the rogue heroes can’t seem to leave home.”The Boston Globe
“A stately, beautiful performance with great resonance . . . What makes this novel so striking is that it joins both blindness and insight, the sensual world and the world of the mind, to tell a story about the unfolding of modern American life.”San Francisco Chronicle
“Wondrous . . . inspired . . . darkly visionary and surprisingly funny.”The New York Review of Books
