Maureen Cronin WE fell in love with Homer and Langley when we read this book aloud. Brilliant writing. Nobel Prize this year?

Lisa Schwartz Doctorow's characters are brilliantly drawn--haunting, curious, flawed, wise, and often desperate. His prose is poetic, rendered with just the right amount of power and subtlety. I want to read everything he's written!


message 4: by Donna

Donna My god, my god, YES. He's written so much truly brilliant work. There are writers I can read and review, and then, there are these rare geniuses, writers like Doctorow, who are so gob-smackingly brilliant that all I can do is go slack-jawed with admiration.
