The Waterworks Author:E.L. Doctorow White background with two black bands: a wider band containing the title and a more narrow band containing the author's name. On top of the wider band is a silhouette-like image of a horsedrawn city bus.
A well-known author for many years, Doctorow takes the reader to 19th Century New York and he pulls you into the book. It's a moral tale about the sin taking place with these people in that era. I loved it.
