About the book:

Durante los anos previos a la Primera Guerra Mundial se gestaron algunos de los movimientos que marcarian los grandes cambios sociales del siglo xx: la situacion de los inmigrantes, las primeras huelgas obreras, la oposicion de los negros contra la discriminacion racial o el papel de la mujer en la sociedad. La relacion que los miembros de una misma familia de clase media mantienen con personajes historicos como la anarquista Emma Goldman, la bella Evelyn Nesbit, el financiero J. P. Morgan, Emiliano Zapata, Sigmund Freud o Henry Ford permite a Doctorow novelar la cronica de una periodo crucial de la Historia. / The story opens in 1906 in New Rochelle, New York, at the home of an affluent American family. One lazy Sunday afternoon, the famous escape artist Harry Houdini swerves his car into a telephone pole outside their house. And almost magically, the line between fantasy and historical fact, between real and imaginary characters, disappears. Henry Ford, Emma Goldman, J. P. Morgan, Evelyn Nesbit, Sigmund Freud, and Emiliano Zapata slip in and out of the tale, crossing paths with Doctorow's imagined family and other fictional characters, including an immigrant peddler and a ragtime musician from Harlem whose insistence on a point of justice drives him to revolutionary violence.
