From the Publisher:
While looking into the disappearance of a missing freelance book reviewer, McIlvaine, a reporter, finds himself roaming around the underground world of 1890s New York City, where he discovers a strange doctor who can keep the rich alive through macabre methods. Reader's Guide included. Reprint.
This fantastical novel, determinedly set in 1871 New York City, is narrated by a newspaper editor, one of whose reporters has mysteriously disappeared. The search for him leads at last to a mad scientist who experiments on human beings in an orphanage on the city's Upper East Side.
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.


New York Times Book Review
"[S]tartling and spellbinding....The reader is helplessly and gratefully caught in the current." - Simon Schama
