Doctorow ì 9 characters Dgar joutuu isän vanhemmat ja sisaret jotka aiheuttavat perheelle sosiaalisia paineita Lapsuudenympäristö on alemman keskiluokan asuinalue Bronx ja sen kadut ja puistot talonmiehet ja katukaupustelijat pihaleikit ja pelottavat katupojat Doctorow kuvaa tuoreesti elävästi ja todesti kuin kertojana olisikin lapsi jolle kaikki maailmassa on uutta ja suurenmoistaMutta Maailmannäyttely ei rajoitu yksityisiin muistoihin vaan sisältää Doctorowille ominaiseen tapaan runsaasti historiallis. The World s Fair was written by EL Doctorow and won the National Book Award in 1986 It is largely an autobiographical novel of a boy Edgar growing up in the Bronx in the 1930 s His fun loving father owns a prominent music store His mother is the adult in the relationship who constantly worries about the finances which are tight during the Depression even before his father loses the store At some point young Edgar begins to figure out what romantic relationships are about and what his dad might be up to He learns what it means to be Jewish in the Bronx in an era when it might cost him his life to wander into the wrong neighborhood The book culminates with Edgar entering a city wide essay contest and his trips to the 1939 World s Fair in New York City This is a heartwarming story masterfully wrought in typical Doctorow fashion replete with descriptive detail It reminded me of another wonderful book about growing up in New York City in the 1930s A Tree Grows in Brooklyn by Betty Smith There is very little sensationalism in either book Other than Edgar being exceptionally bright and Jewish there is nothing that distinguishes his story from millions of other children that have grown up in New York 45 stars Some people find Doctorow s writing a little boring I know that doesn t sound like much of an endorsement but boy he writes with such clarity and his stories are some of the most descriptive and realistic that I ve read I would have liked to learn about the main character s brother as he just drifted off to the merchant marines

World s Fair is a novel that sort of creeps up on you It has no discernable plot it is merely snippets of moments in a young Jewish boy s life in New York City in the 1930s It is a very detailed work EL Doctorow creates the sense of place vividly You are there when he describes somethingThe book is told from the perspective of Edgar Altschuler a young man looking back on details of his youth Of the text s 31 chapters all are from his point of view with the exception of four from his mother s Rose two from his brother Donald and one from his aunt Frances I only mention this because when Doctorow shifts the perspective albeit briefly it increases the scope of the text and makes the story that much richer When these seven chapters are interspersed in the book they are written as if the character whose point of view we are getting is telling their perspective to the adult Edgar who is our guide in this tale The interspersion creates a nice contrast in the text and is a good techniue as employed hereWorld s Fair is a beautifully written book but it is also fair to say that at times it is overwritten However when the writing is as good as this is you mostly don t care about that Doctorow does an amazing job of capturing how a child sees and interprets things You really live inside the mind of a young boy You will recognize Edgar s way of thinking from your own childhood It is an astounding feat and a real testament to the greatness of this bookA highlight of the novel is chapters 28 29 which feature Edgar going to the 1939 World s Fair and it is magical The writing soars at this point and the reader will find they are as enthralled as this nine year old boy is at the wonders that he beholds It is edge of your seat reading and you will not put the book down in the middle of these two chapters I assure youOne of the critical blurbs on the cover of the novel perfectly captures this text so I will end my review with it Doctorow has managed to regain the awed perspective of a child in this novel of rare warmth and intimacy All I can say to that is amen
