it was amazing
Read in June, 2007

Totally mesmerizing, hallucinagenic almost. Creates that feeling of being unmoored from the shore and swept along a in a current. At any moment, someone or something else can float by you as you're carried along by the water against your will, just hoping to keep your feet up so as not to get pulled under by a hidden rock or branch and drown. He's a really good writer.

Bryan Kelly An excellent and too brief review that captures the tidal sense of Doctrows emphasis, which is mainly the sense of being caught up in a riptide of advancing history while attmpting to remember one's given name and cause for living. Moreover, his style is ever gracious and spare and resoundingly forgiving.

Jeff Love this review!
