This brilliant new novel by an American master, the author of Ragtime, The Book of Daniel, Billy Bathgate, and The March, takes us on a radical trip into the mind of a man who, more than once in his life, has been an inadvertent agent of disaster.

Speaking from an unknown place and to an unknown interlocutor, Andrew is thinking, Andrew is talking, Andrew is telling the story of his life, his loves, and the tragedies that have led him to this place and point in time. And as he confesses, peeling back the layers of his strange story, we are led to question what we know about truth and memory, brain and mind, personality and fate, about one another and ourselves.

Written with psychological depth and great lyrical precision, this suspenseful and groundbreaking novel delivers a voice for our times-funny, probing, skeptical, mischievous, profound.

MEDIA REVIEWS

Thirty-nine years after Ragtime, Doctorow is still at it; still ambitious, still sinuous, intimate, conversational - Jane Smiley, Guardian

Mind-bending and brilliant . . . an astonishing range of modes: vaudeville humour, tragic romance, philosophical speculation . . . it fizzes with intellectual energy, verbal pyrotechnics and satiric flair. It is a late-career tour de force - Sunday Times

Assured and visually striking - Independent

Ambitious, finely wrought, posing questions that cut to the heart of identity and storytelling - Daily Mail

[Doctorow] is a brilliant, careful observer . . . he has a poet's flair - Times Literary Supplement

Assured in combining the historical and grand with the ordinary and affecting - this is clearly an E. L. Doctorow novel . . . For more than five decades, Doctorow has written novels that jolt American history to life - New Statesman
