Book of Daniel by E. L. Doctorow

Book Description

It is based on the trial and execution of Ethel and Julius Rosenberg, convicted of delivering information about the atomic bomb to the Soviet Union E.L. Doctorow's "The Book of Daniel" includes a new introduction by Jonathan Freedland in "Penguin Modern Classics". As Cold War hysteria inflames America, FBI agents pay a surprise visit to a Communist man and his wife in their New York apartment. After a trial that divides the country, the couple are sent to the electric chair for treason. Decades later, in 1967, their son Daniel struggles to understand the tragedy of their lives. But while he is tormented by his past and trying to appreciate his own wife and son, Daniel is also haunted, like millions of others, by the need to come to terms with a country destroying itself in the Vietnam War. A stunning fictionalization of a political drama that tore the United States apart, "The Book of Daniel" is an intensely moving tale of political martyrdom and the search for meaning. E.L. Doctorow (b.1931) is one of America's most accomplished and acclaimed living writers. Winner of the National Book Award, the National Book Critics Circle Award (twice), the PEN/Faulkner Award, and the National Humanities Medal, he is the author of nine novels that have explored the drama of American life from the late 19th century to the 21st, including "Ragtime", "The Book of Daniel" and "Billy Bathgate". If you enjoyed "The Book of Daniel", you might like Ralph Ellison's "Invisible Man", also available in "Penguin Modern Classics". "Art on this level can be only a cause for rejoicing". (Joyce Carol Oates). "[Doctorow] is at once a radical historian, a cultural anthropologist, a troubadour, a private eye, and a cost-benefit analyst of assimilation and upward mobility in the great American multiculture". (John Leonard, "New York Review of Books").
