The history of New York comes brilliantly to life in the novels of E. L. Doctorow, winner of the National Book Award and three National Book Critics Circle Awards for such classic bestsellers as “Ragtime,” “Billy Bathgate” and “The Book of Daniel.” His new novel, “Homer and Langley,” is inspired by the notorious true story of the legendary Collyer brothers. Doctorow, making an exclusive New York area interview appearance, talks with New York Times Magazine contributing writer Russell Shorto (“The Island at the Center of the World”) about his career and about the art of writing New York.
