Well, I put E L Doctorow on hold for awhile....he had several narrators in WORLD'S FAIR all of them speaking in first person and I was not in the 'mood' for that....although I have liked all of Doctorow's books thus far....( I read RAGTIME over forty years ago and instantly became a big fan...)  So I will read it later when I am in the mood....



So I grabbed Paul Horgan's A DISTANT TRUMPET.....




......oh, yeah!!!!  I can't put it down!
