Review:

"Doctorow's first novel, 'Welcome to Hard Times',...is a superb piece of fiction: lean and mean, and thematically significant....This is what E. L. Doctorow does in 'Welcome to Hard Times': he takes the thin, somewhat sordid and incipiently depressing materials of the Great Plains experience and fashions them into a myth of good and evil, city-founding and city-destroying. He does it marvelously, with economy and with great narrative power."

Kevin Starr, New Republic, 09/06/1975
