Billy Bathgate

Author(s): E. L. Doctorow

SECONDHAND BOOKS | Literary Fiction

To open this book is to enter the perilous, thrilling world of Billy Bathgate, the brazen boy who is accepted into the inner circle of the notorious Dutch Schultz gang. Like an urban Tom Sawyer, Billy takes us along on his fateful adventures as he becomes good-luck charm, apprentice, and finally prot g to one of the great murdering gangsters of the Depression-era underworld in New York City. The luminous transformation of fact into fiction that is E. L. Doctorow's trademark comes to triumphant fruition in Billy Bathgate, a peerless coming-of-age tale and one of Doctorow's boldest and most beloved bestsellers.

1989. First UK edition. A very good copy with uniform page tanning and a gift inscription to the front free endpaper. The d/w is unclipped and also very good.
