I must rise to the defense of E L Doctorow, who was one of 20th century America's great historical novelists and playwrights, and the recipient of many literary awards. His style is known for shifts of perspective and voice and the experimentation so prevalent in mid-20th century literature. "The Book of Daniel" is a fictionalized account of the execution of the Rosenbergs told through the eyes of their son.
The previous comment about this book rightly points out that Doctorow was in fact a leftist and self-described social democrat. Admittedly, I have not read this book, preferring alternative world fantasy, but I feel compelled to say that Doctorow's work, although sometimes inscrutable and not always likeable, is not rubbish. I'm sure some of Austin's library patrons would find it both challenging and thought provoking.

Couldn't listen to more than a few paragraphs. Offensiveness posing as progressiveness. Why are my tax dollars supporting this garbage.
