Abstract:

With brilliant and audacious strokes, E.L. Doctorow creates a breathtaking collage of memories, events, visions, and provocative thought, all centered on an idea of the modern reality of God. At the heart of this stylistically daring tour de force is a detective story about a cross that vanishes from a rundown Episcopal church in lower Manhattan only to reappear on the roof of an Upper West Side synagogue. Intrigued by the mystery--and by the maverick rector and the young rabbi investigating the strange act of desecration--is a well-known novelist, whose capacious brain is a virtual repository for the ideas and disasters of the age.
