Author Bio
E.L. Doctorow
Doctorow was brought up in the Bronx and studied philosophy at Kenyon College. He worked as an editor in the New York publishing world (editing Norman Mailer, among others) and has taught at various colleges. He published his first novel in 1960. Doctorow has been called a "literary sociologist" because many of his books reflect his interest in American politics and cultural history.

Praise

Detroit News
"A nearly perfect work of art, and art on this level can only be a cause for rejoicing." - Joyce Carol Oates

New York Times Book Review
"'The Book of Daniel' is an ambitious, felt reconstruction of the little agonies, paranoias, obscenities, totems, murders, frauds and taboos of post-World War II America...[T]he book does take hold of us and force us to squint at ourselves because of its ability to energize the wreckage of our own past." - Jerome Charyn 7/4/1971

Partisan Review
"E. L. Doctorow's 'The Book of Daniel' is a brilliant achievement...[It] is a book about children of trials, trials that mostly do not take place in palaces of justice. It is a book about crisis and because of that, it is a book of infinite detail and tender attention to the edges of life as well as to its dead center." - Jane Richmond Fall 1972
