Product Description

Winner of the National Book Critics Circle Award. This vivid novel of exceptional scope and depth is set in the years before the First World War. One lazy Sunday afternoon in New Rochelle, New York, the famous escape artist Harry Houdini swerves his car into a telephone pole outside the home of an affluent American family. Almost magicially, the line between fact and fiction, between real and invented characters, disappears. The likes of Henry Ford, Emma Goldman and J.P. Morgan cross paths with Doctorow's brilliant fictional creations, including Tateh, an immigrant Jewish peddler, and Coalhouse Walker, Jr., a ragtime pianist from Harlem. A spellbinding classic that raptures the imagination!
