Summary

The astonishing novel of a young boy's life in the New York City of the 1930s, a stunning recreation of the sights, sounds, aromas and emotions of a time when the streets were safe, families stuck together through thick and thin, and all the promises of a generation culminate in a single great World's Fair...

Critic reviews

“Marvelous... You get lost in World’s Fair as if it were an exotic adventure. You devour it with the avidity usually provoked by a suspense thriller.” (The New York Times)
World’s Fair is better than a time capsule; it’s an actual slice of a long-ago world, and we emerge from it as dazed as those visitors standing on the corner of the future.” (Anne Tyler)
“Doctorow has managed to regain the awed perspective of a child in this novel of rare warmth and intimacy.... Stony indeed in the heart that cannot be moved by this book.” (People)
