Synopsis

Edgar Lawrence Doctorow was born in the Bronx, New York City, the son of second-generation Americans of Russian Jewish descent and is an American author. World’s Fair was the 1986 recipient of the National Book Award. In this wonderfully descriptive novel we meet the narrator, young Edgar Altschuler, a Jewish kid growing up in the Bronx of the 1930’s. The introspective drama follows Edgars from infancy through age 9, and captures the stunning sights, emotions and sounds of that time period. The story culminates with Edgar’s visit to the exciting World’s Fair of 1939 in Flushing Meadow. E.L. Doctorow skillfully reveals an especially good story that is compelling and memorable.
