I really enjoyed reading this book. It takes place in the l930's and I can really relate to it because I was born in the 30's. His description of life in the l930s is so real it is remarkable. E.L. Doctorow is a genius at describing life as seen through the eyes of a child (as in this book), or through the eyes of a young man coming to maturity as in Billy Bathgate. I have read everything the author has written, and he never disappoints me. Genny Sikes
