Remembering E. L. Doctorow
Yesterday, 7/21/15, a "leading figure in contemporary American letters" passed away. American author E. L. Doctorow, born in the Bronx in 1931, will be remembered for his many compelling and critically admired books such as Ragtime, Billy Bathgate, Loon Lake, City of God, World's Fair, The March, Homer & Langley and others. He was the winner of the PEN/Faulkner Award for Fiction, the National Book Critics Circle Award for Fiction, the Pulitzer Prize (for The March), and a finalist for the National Book Award. If you are a lover of American history and literature, you owe it to yourself to read some of Doctorow's fiction!
