I was looking forward to this but it just didn't grab me. I'll try it again later. I want to like it but.....Yeah I'll try again later.
Amazing main character who "passes" in many different way: she goes back and forth between appearing as a boy or a girl, as Black or white, and as a child or an adult.
Doctorow reports on Sherman's march through the U.S. south at the end of the Civil War. He describes historical figures such as Sherman and Lincoln, but the story is told through individuals such as an army surgeon, a freed slave, a displaced plantation owner, and army deserters. The book does not dwell on violence and gore, to my relief. It dwells on the effect of the war on various parts of the population. Doctorow writes with humor and compassion, and I want to read more of his books.
