Description
The hero of this dazzling novel by American master E. L. Doctorow is Joe, a young man on the run in the depths of the Great Depression. A late-summer night finds him alone and shivering beside a railroad track in the Adirondack mountains when a private railcar passes. Brightly lit windows reveal well-dressed men at a table and, in another compartment, a beautiful girl holding up a white dress before her naked form. Joe will follow the track to the mysterious estate at Loon Lake, where he finds the girl along with a tycoon, an aviatrix, a drunken poet, and a covey of gangsters. Here Joe's fate will play out in this powerful story of ambition, aggression, and identity. Loon Lake is another stunning achievement of this acclaimed author. "Powerful . . . [a] complex and haunting meditation on modern American history." -The New York Times "A genuine thriller . . . a marvelous exploration of the complexities and contradictions of the American dream . . . Not under any circumstances would we reveal the truly shattering climax." - The Dallas Morning News "A dazzling performance . . . [ Loon Lake ] anatomizes America with insight, passion, and inventiveness." -The Washington Post Book World "Hypnotic . . . tantalizes long after it has ended." -Time "Compelling . . . brilliantly done." -St. Louis Post-Dispatch "A masterpiece." -Chicago Sun-Times
