nykypäivän asenteiden syntyä sitä miten menneisyys on vaikuttanut niihin Tällä kertaa hän on käyttänyt havaintovälineenään itseää An Overlooked American ClassicThe late EL Doctorow s 1931 2015 novel World s Fair 1985 is a lyrical autobiographical story about growing up in the New York City during the Depression Most of the book is told in the first person by an adult Edgar who reflects upon his childhood up to the age of about nine The adult writer has also approached family members for their reminisces and some chapters of the book are in the words of the boy s mother Rose brother Donald father Dave and his Aunt FrancesA beauty of this novel is the way in which it captures the innocence and feelings of early childhood in simple language but with an adult s sensibility and nostalgia The story has the feel of authenticity even while it is told in a detached way from a distance of yearsIn its simplicity the story covers a broad scope Edgar is a youngster of four at the outset of the book with a brother eight years older We see the closeness of the brothers together with their relationship to their parents Dave a free spirited unsuccessful businessman and his restless piano

it and it would instruct me and give me everything I needed As I fell asleep the fireworks went off over and over again like me pounding my own chest and sending my voice to the heavens that I was hereIn another section of the book the boy s Aunt Frances discusses her marriage to Ephraim a highly successful lawyer who has become a political conservative Ephraim and I had a wonderful marriage We never argued He was a conservative Republican a member of the Liberty League He knew I felt differently I voted for Norman Thomas one year and simply didn t tell him and he didn t ask He trusted me to handle all the household accounts and make the domestic decisions while he attended to his law practice The system worked beautifullySomething may be learned here in our own troubled timesIn a review
