"A wonderful addition to the ranks of American boy heroes . . . Huck Finn and Tom Sawyer with more poetry, Holden Caulfield with more zest and spirit . . . The kind of book you find yourself finishing at three in the morning after promising at midnight that you'll stop at the next page."--New York Times Book Review "A modern American masterpiece . . . Doctorow takes up the legacies of Fitzgerald and Cheever and adds to them a savage and erotic splendor of his own."--John le Carr "Indelible in its fierce energy, its relentless irony, its rawness."--Philadelphia Inquirer "Riveting . . . mesmerizing . . . unforgettable."--Time "Enthralling."--Los Angeles Times
