Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis:

A tale inspired by a true story finds the blind Homer Collyer closeted within a once-grand Fifth Avenue mansion with his damaged brother and remembering a life marked by colorful characters, political events, and technological achievements. By the National Book Award-winning author of Billy Bathgate. Simultaneous.


Review:

"Wizardly Doctorow presents an ingenious, haunting odyssey that unfolds within a labyrinth built out of the detritus of war and excess." (starred review)

Donna Seaman, Booklist Upfront, 07/01/2009

Review:

"[A] beautiful and haunting novel....Doctorow is clear and compassionate in detailing [the brothers'] stunted emotions and phobias, and he creates a surprising kind of suspense as the stuff piles up, and the house begins to close around them into a big, messy tomb....Doctorow's writing is so lithe, the book easily sustains all of its thematic musings - about technology and history and consumer culture, even the novelist as kind of housebound Quixote."

Jess Walter, Boston Globe, 08/30/2009
