Something to look forward to…

Homer &L angley by E.L. Doctorow

Here’s a book I’m looking forward to reading.  Homer & Langley by E.L. Doctorow. A novel, it is a fictional account of the lives of the Collyer brothers – two NYC legends that Mark Helprin couldn’t have made up on his best day. Definately start clearing off the bedside table for this one!  Release date:   September 1st.

Note:  This will be my first Doctorow novel, who for no good reason I’ve always confused with Caleb Carr.  I think the same person must design both their book jackets.

    1. Strangely – this is the first of his books to grab my interest. Probably due to that unfortunate Carr association.


  1. Just picked it up and I’m looking forward. Loved Book of Daniel-perhaps my fav. book!-and billy bathgate. his short stories are also not to be missed, as they give you a glimpse into his brilliantly disrupted mind.


    1. jjaylad – Thanks for stopping by! I just finished Homer & Langley and am working on the review tonight. I’m happy to say that I very much enjoyed it. Doctorow more than lives up to the hype. He did some really clever structural things with this novel in addition to telling a great story. As you already seem to be a fan, do you recommend Book of Daniel as my follow up?
