Doctorow Ä Ragtime Kindle º Ä ragtime free, Ragtime PDFEPUBSometime early in his career EL Doctorow figured out a great formula for historical fiction He takes real life iconic figures from whatever era he’s covering and has them interact in believable ways with his fictional characters It makes for a “show don’t tell” scenario that brings history alive With Ragtime we get to peek inside

    MOBI E.L. Doctorow Ä Ragtime Kindle º Ä ragtime free, Ragtime PDFEPUBWhen we read history books we are given a rather wide view of a tapestry of interconnected events what Doctorow did with Ragtime is to take a magnifying glass to that intricate tapestry to give the reader a much much closer look at some events that we thought we were familiar with As such it's a bit hard to summarize we follow some episodes of the lives of a Upstate New York family and how their existence is linked to such famous figures as Harry Houdini Henry Ford Emma Goldman Evelyn Nesbit Sigmund Freud etcThe writing style is very simple and clean which makes Ragtime a fast read and it also strikes a very pleasant storytelling tone But that tone is also a bit impersonal and while I enjoyed this visit to early 20th century America I'm not sure that I loved it I never really felt transported to the setting nor especially invested in the stories of the various characters Which is weird because I am fascinated by that time p
