"Something close to magic." The Los Angeles Times

The astonishing novel of a young boy's life in the New York City of the 1930s, a stunning recreation of the sights, sounds, aromas and emotions of a time when the streets were safe, families stuck together through thick and thin, and all the promises of a generation culminate in a single great World's Fair . . .

From AudioFile:

Flat and un-emotive are not words associated with E.L. Doctorow. Unfortunately, they are the prime descriptors of this rendition of Doctorow's recollection of a 1930s' New York boyhood. Lavelle has a well-modulated voice tinged with a minor key, which might work well for this New York story. Yet his slow, even reading is devoid of emotion. For all the interest he shows in the text, he might be clearly enunciating the telephone directory. A.C.S. AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine-- Copyright AudioFile, Portland, Maine
