About this title

Synopsis:

By the same author as "Ragtime", and "The Book of Daniel", this novel is set in New York in the days of the Depression. It is the story of Billy Bathgate, who joins the notorious Dutch Schulz gang as a good luck charm, protege and apprentice mobster.

Review:

In the Bronx of the 1930s, 15-year-old Billy Bathgate hooks up with a legendary mobster, Dutch Schultz. Schultz becomes an unlikely surrogate parent to the boy, introducing him to the ways of the world and training Billy to follow in his footsteps. After Billy falls for Schulz's latest girlfriend, he begins to question the actions of the mob he was so eager to join. As he seeks to protect the young woman, he gains strength in following his own heart and makes a courageous passage from boyhood to adulthood. E.L Doctorow won the 1990 PEN/Faulkner Award for this novel.
