Doctorow World's Fair review Á 103 Ta rekvisiittaa sanomalehdet kertovat sodanuhasta Euroopassa kaupungin taivaalle ilmestyy valtava ilmalaiva Hindenburg matkalalan kohti tuhoa Ja sitten avataan New Yorkin maailmannäyttely ihmeellinen tulevaisuudenmaa jonne jokainen lapsi toivoo pääsevänsäTämä lapsuudenmuistelma on kiinteä osa Doctorowin tuotantoa jossa hän on tarkastellut nykypäivän asenteiden syntyä sitä miten menneisyys on vaikuttanut niihin Tällä kertaa hän on käyttänyt havaintovälineenään itseää. 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
