Ragtime: A Novel (Modern Library 100 Best Novels)
Ragtime: A Novel (Modern Library 100 Best Novels)
Published in 1975, Ragtime changed our very concept of what a novel could be. An extraordinary tapestry, Ragtime captures the spirit of America in the era between the turn of the century and the First World War.The story opens in 1906 in New Rochelle, New York, at the home of an affluent American family. One lazy Sunday afternoon, the famous escape artist Harry Houdini swerves his car into a telephone pole outside their house. And almost magically, the line between fantasy and historical fact, between real and imaginary characters, disappears. Henry Ford, Emma Goldman, J. P. Morgan, Evelyn Nesbit, Sigmund Freud, and Emiliano Zapata slip in and out of the tale, crossing paths with Doctorow's imagined family and other fictional characters, including an immigrant peddler and a ragtime musician from Harlem whose insistence on a point of justice drives him to revolutionary violence.The Modern Library has played a significant role in American cultural life for the better part of a century. The series was founded in 1917 by the publishers Boni and Liveright and eight years later acquired by Bennett Cerf and Donald Klopfer. It provided the foundation for their next publishing venture, Random House. The Modern Library has been a staple of the American book trade, providing readers with affordable hardbound editions of important works of literature and thought. For the Modern Library's seventy-fifth anniversary, Random House redesigned the series, restoring as its emblem the running torch-bearer created by Lucian Bernhard in 1925 and refurbishing jackets, bindings, and type, as well as inaugurating a new program of selecting titles. The Modern Library continues to provide the world's best books, at the best prices.

City of God: A Novel
City of God: A Novel
NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER   With brilliant and audacious strokes, E. L. Doctorow creates a breathtaking collage of memories, events, visions, and provocative thought, all centered on an idea of the modern reality of God. At the heart of this stylistically daring tour de force is a detective story about a cross that vanishes from a rundown Episcopal church in lower Manhattan only to reappear on the roof of an Upper West Side synagogue. Intrigued by the mystery?and by the maverick rector and the young rabbi investigating the strange act of desecration?is a well-known novelist, whose capacious brain is a virtual repository for the ideas and disasters of the age.   Daringly poised at the junction of the sacred and the profane, filled with the sights and sounds of New York, and encompassing a large cast of vividly drawn characters including theologians, scientists, Holocaust survivors, and war veterans, City of God is a monumental work of spiritual reflection, philosophy, and history by America?s preeminent novelist and chronicler of our time.   Praise for City of God   ?A grander perspective on the universe . . . a novel that sets its sights on God.??The Wall Street Journal   ?Dazzling . . . The true miracle of City of God is the way its disparate parts fuse into a consistently enthralling and suspenseful whole.??Time   ?Blooms with humor, and a humanity that carries triumphant as intelligent a novel as one might hope to find these days.??Los Angeles Times   ?Radiates [with] panoramic ambition and spiritual incandescence.??Chicago Tribune   ?One of the greatest American novels of the past fifty years . . . Reading City of God restores one?s faith in literature.??The Houston ChronicleFrom the Hardcover edition.

Doctorow: Collected Stories
Doctorow: Collected Stories
A superb collection of fifteen stories?including ?Wakefield,? the inspiration for the film starring Bryan Cranston?by the author of Ragtime, The March, The Book of Daniel, and Billy Bathgate He has been called ?a national treasure? by George Saunders. Doctorow?s great topic, said Don DeLillo, is ?the reach of American possibility, in which plain lives take on the cadences of history.? This power is apparent everywhere in these stories: the bravery and self-delusion of people seeking the American dream; the geniuses, mystics, and charlatans who offer people false hope, or an actual glimpse of greatness. In ?A House on the Plains,? a mother has a plan for financial independence, which may include murder. In ?Walter John Harmon,? a man starts a cult using subterfuge and seduction. ?Jolene: A Life? follows a teenager who escapes her home for Hollywood on a perilous quest for success. ?Heist,? the account of an Episcopal priest coping with a crisis of faith, was expanded into the bestseller City of God. ?The Water Works,? about the underbelly of 1870s New York, grew into a brilliant novel. ?Liner Notes: The Songs of Billy Bathgate? is a corollary to the renowned novel and includes Doctorow?s revisions. These fifteen stories, written from the 1960s to the early twenty-first century, and selected, revised, and placed in order by the author himself shortly before he died in 2015, are a testament to the genius of E. L. Doctorow.Praise for Doctorow: Collected Stories?Here, without the framework of historical context that defines his best-known novels, we discover a Doctorow equally adept at plumbing the contemporary American psyche and are reminded of literature?s loss following his death.??O: The Oprah Magazine ?These tales?sketches, really, wide-ranging in time, place and circumstances?are penned by a modern master. . . . What makes Doctorow?s historical novels brilliant is their engaging prose, smart writerly style, unconventional narratives and inventive and entertaining plots. Same for these dog-eared, pre-owned stories.??USA Today Praise for E. L. Doctorow ?He has rewarded us, these forty-five years, with a vision of ourselves, as a people, a vision possessed of what I might call ?aspirational verve??he sees us clearly and tenderly, just as we are, but also sees past that?to what we might, at our best, become.??George Saunders ?Doctorow did not so much write fiction about history as he seemed to occupy history itself. He owned it. He made it his own.??Ta-Nehisi Coates ?On every level, [Doctorow?s] work is powerful. . . . His sensitivity to language is perfectly balanced, and complemented by a gigantic vision.??Jennifer Egan ?[He wrote] with such stunning audacity that I can still remember my parents? awed dinner-table conversation, that summer, about a novel they were reading, called Ragtime, that went up to the overgrown wall enclosing the garden of fiction and opened the doorway to history.??Michael Chabon ?Doctorow?s prose tends to create its own landscape, and to become a force that works in opposition to the power of social reality.??Don DeLillo ?A writer of dazzling gifts and boundless imaginative energy.??Joyce Carol Oates

Conversations with E. L. Doctorow (Literary Conversations Series)
Conversations with E. L. Doctorow (Literary Conversations Series)
"We're living a national ideology that's invisible to us because we're inside it." At the outset of his career E. L. Doctorow told Paul Levine, "History written by historians is clearly insufficient." Doctorow's novels carry out that conviction by imagining the great moments of American history--the Old West, the gilded age, the Depression, the cold war--as backdrops for tales of excruciating moral pain and injustice in America. In Conversations with E. L. Doctorow Christopher D. Morris has gathered over twenty of the most revelatory interviews with the acclaimed author of Ragtime, World's Fair, Billy Bathgate, The Book of Daniel, and other novels, plays, and short stories. Whatever the setting or time period, Doctorow's characters spark an unparalleled urgency in the novelist's recreations of history. In his work the American dream and the values his characters try to live by turn to madness and ashes. Within this collection Doctorow explores the themes of his work not only in the contexts of national and literary history but also in terms of disturbing trends in contemporary American culture. Talking about style, Doctorow discusses his experiments with shifting points of view and unreliable narrators as part of the modernist heritage to which readers have become accustomed. But he stresses that these techniques are always subordinate to the telling of a good story and the creation of memorable characters. "My portrait of J. P. Morgan in Ragtime is truer to the man's soul and the substance of his life than his authorized biography," he says. Doctorow's critical and popular success comes from the creation and re-creation of such great characters and the telling of captivating stories in which the writer serves as an independent witness to both the ideals and the corruptions that have driven our history. Christopher D. Morris has been the Charles A. Dana Professor of English at Norwich University in Northfield, Vermont, since 1996. He is also the author of Models of Misrepresentation: On the Fiction of E. L. Doctorow and regularly publishes in journals like The Ohio Review, Critique, and Film Criticism.
