Holy crap, I love this book.
If you don't *get* the dedications to bookstores thar start each chapter, then you need to revisit Doctorow's Introduction.
As we get deeper into the book, each dedication almost made me puddle up and I found myself Googling the stores to mke make sure they still...lived.
In my copy, after the chapter dedication the late Borders (my town lost 3), I wrote "RIP, Borders...and Thank You."
Review coming shortly.
