Product Details

Praise

“Marvelous . . . You get lost in World’s Fair as if it were an exotic adventure. You devour it with the avidity usually provoked by a suspense thriller.”The New York Times

“Something close to magic.”Los Angeles Times

World’s Fair is better than a time capsule; it’s an actual slice of a long-ago world, and we emerge from it as dazed as those visitors standing on the corner of the future.”—Anne Tyler

“Doctorow has managed to regain the awed perspective of a child in this novel of rare warmth and intimacy. . . . Stony indeed in the heart that cannot be moved by this book.”People

“Fascinating . . . exquisitely rendered details of a lost way of life.”Newsweek

“Wonderful reading.”USA Today
