Quotes & Awards

  • “Something close to magic.”

    Los Angeles Times

  • “Narrator John Rubinstein infuses this delightfully nostalgic coming-of-age story with adult introspection but also childish scrutiny of a boy’s treasures…Rubinstein depicts Edgar’s awe as he visits the 1939 World’s Fair in New York, where he encounters amazing technological promises of the future alongside seedy hucksters and sad human oddities. Rubinstein’s strongest contribution to Doctorow’s award-winning novel is his unencumbered portrayal of a wide-eyed yet precocious youngster.”
