Sweet Land Stories - E.L. Doctorow

Little, Brown and Company / —
These dazzling short works are crafted with all the weight and resonance of the novels for which E. L. Doctorow is famous. You will find yourself set down in a mysterious redbrick house in rural Illinois (‘A House on the Plains’), working things out with a baby-kidnapping couple in California (‘Baby Wilson’), living on a religious-cult commune in Kansas (‘Walter John Harmon’), sharing the heartrending cross-country journey of a young woman navigating her way through three bad marriages (‘Jolene: A Life’), and witnessing an FBI special agent at a personal crossroads while he investigates a grave breach of White House Security (‘Child, Dead, in the Rose Garden’).
Comprised in a variety of moods and voices, these remarkable portrayals of the American spiritual landscape show a modern master at the height of his powers.

The March: A Novel - E.L. Doctorow

Little, Brown and Company / —
Doctorow’s new novel is set towards the end of the American Civil War and follows General Sherman’s epic march with sixty thousand Union troops through Georgia and the Carolinas, one of the major manoeuvres to bring the war to its conclusion. THE MARCH ranges widely over a diverse set of characters — each of whom is brilliantly realised — so that we see the war through the eyes of both white-skinned Pearl (daughter of slave and slave owner) and General Sherman; a deserting confederate who sets himself up as a photographer; a ruthless army surgeon who enjoys his reputation as an amputator; and the two brothers of a brutal slave owner who find themselves in uniforms facing Sherman’s forces.
Doctorow’s narrative brilliantly blends the intimate and the epic, sweeping the reader along the route of Sherman’s notorious march and making us care deeply about each individual’s fate.
