Published in 1975 Ragtime changed our very concept of what a novel could be An extraordinary tapestry Ragtime captures the spirit of America in the era between the turn of the century the First World War The story opens in 1906 in New Rochelle NY at the home of an affluent Am A ragin feelin I had during the first half of Ragtime was oh my gawd this may possibly become my favorite novel all year Yeah That overwhelmingly delicious feeling last year achieved during my Where d You Go BernadetteThe Godfather double whammy was reproduced until it almost organically chose to focus on one specific era in US history Ragtime is just so majestically beautiful taking on the whole of America between 1903 1915 aka the dawning of the 20th century displaying an intrepid attitude that blazes that acceleratesIt is incredible an accessible long meditation like a panorama portrait described with broad lush strokes accessible unlike Saramago or Garcia Maruez It s funny it s very clever with its use of scales for everything in literature is worth a mention from a simple shadow on the floor to the features of the general populace of the great American metropolis this novel has it all when the scale becomes unfathomable Doctorow maintains one singular strand in a huge tapestry that has many strands it seems He chooses to fix the novel past the faux majesties of the new money set where Gatsby existed and the slum wretched poor the days before the grapes of wrath in a factual story of a black man robbed of his property his basic human dignity and conseuently of his revenge on the white cowards Ragtime is entertaining wholesome very educational I would urge every American History teacher to add it to the syllabus It describes a macrocosm effectively the factoids are invigorating Plus the prose well it s endearing unforgettable good great amazing
