Welcome to Hard Times, bu E.L. Doctorow

  • Title:  Welcome to Hard Times
  • Author:  E. L. Doctorow
  • Borrowed from DC Public (AudioBook)

I have never read any Doctorow, and I suspect if I had asked someone what book of his to read they would not have mentioned this one -- but they should.  This was an outstanding western, not of cowboys and shootouts, but of those trying to build something, while others try to take away what is built.  It is about stubborn people, disappointment, hope, and destruction.  I really, really enjoyed reading this one.
