Overview

El héroe de esta brillante novela del maestro de las letras americanas, E.L. Doctorow, es Joe, un joven que escapa de la Gran Depresión. Huye de su hogar en Patterson, New Jersey, a la ciudad de Nueva York, y aprende la cruda realidad de la vida antes de seguir su ruta con unos feriantes. En una noche de verano está solo y temblando de frío, intentando dormir al lado de unas vías de ferrocarril en las montañas de Adirondack, cuando por su lado pasa un vagón privado. Su interior está iluminado y a través de las ventanas puede ver a varios hombres bien vestidos sentados a una mesa y, en otro compartimento, a una hermosa mujer desnuda que sostiene un vestido blanco delante de ella mientras se observa en un espejo. A partir de esa noche, Joe seguirá las vías hasta la misteriosa propiedad de Loon Lake, donde encontrará a la chica además de a sus acompañantes: un empresario de éxito, un aviador, un poeta borracho, y un grupito de gángsters. Así se presenta el escenario para una cautivadora historia de misterio y amenaza, avaricia y ambición, lujuria desatada y tierno amor, que desnuda las profundidades más oscuras del corazón humano y el lado pesadillesco del sueño americano. E.L. Doctorow ha escrito una novela que brilla con pasión y poesía, iluminada por la antorcha de la humanidad y la historia, el horror y la verdad.

Meet the Author

E. L. Doctorow
E. L. Doctorow
Few writers have succeeded as E. L. Doctorow has at creating stories (largely based in 1930s New York) that evoke both warm, personal memory and a grander national portrait. Doctorow doesn't always promise historical veracity, but he captures our imagination of the past flawlessly.

Biography

E. L. Doctorow, one of America's preeminent authors, has received the National Book Critics Circle Award (twice), the National Book Award, the PEN/Faulkner Award, the Edith Wharton Citation For Fiction, and the William Dean Howells medal of the American Academy of Arts and Letters. He has also published a volume of selected essays Jack London, Hemingway, and the Constitution, and a play, Drinks Before Dinner, which was produced by the New York Shakespeare Festival. He resides in New Rochelle, New York.

Good To Know

Doctorow began his career as a reader for Columbia Pictures. He went on to work as an editor for New American Library in the early 1960s, and then served as chief editor at Dial Press from 1964 to 1969.

Critics assailed Doctorow for delivering a commencement address critical of President George W. Bush at Hofstra University in May 2004.
