Format: Kindle Edition
A dozen short stories showcasing the full inventiveness and range of Doctorow's writing and his depth of understanding of America and its people.
Opening with 'Wakefield'-a story of a lawyer who takes the opportunity to disappear for a year, keeping an eye on his world from the garage attic, you're hooked as Doctorow takes you through a journey of migrants,disallusioned priests,deluded men of God, of people in an endless search of themselves and life.
This is a truly great collection, the only downside being that-as a Doctorow fan-you'd have come accross most of these elsewhere;'Walter John Harmon' 'House on the Plains' 'Jolene' in "Sweet Land Stories" 'Writer in the Family' 'Willi' and 'The Hunter' in "Lives of the Poets" 'Heist' as the forerunner and basis for "City of God". It all comes accross as a kind of "Greatest Hits" compilation!
As much as I enjoyed re reading and re exploring many of these stories (and enjoying the new every bit as much) I think if I had browsed the list of stories instead of-as is my habit-automatically pulling any new Doctorow title off the shelf;a guaranteed great read, I might have decided to borrow from the library to read the half dozen stories new to me rather than pay full whack (Kindle is a cheaper option!)But this isn't to detract from a superlative collection from a superlative writer, and if you haven't read any of these before, I envy you the pleasure!
