Once upon a time I thought Doctorow was a real contender a heavyweight storyteller if not of canonical stature then at least on par with other true professionals like Fowles or Dexter Hell I guess he is actually but it was Ragtime and Billy Bathgate that put that thought in mind and Waterworks while reinforcing the fact that Doctorow s a craftsman does little to advance his reputation in my opinion It s a good if dull story and a nice little exercise in the ellipsis as pace setter but in the end it s just dull boring blah Read Ragtime though and Billy Bathgate if you like Ragtime
