This month’s book selection is Homer & Langley by E.L. Doctorow. Here, in the author’s own words, is his description of the book:
“In one sense I think of Homer & Langley as a road novel–as if they are two people traveling together down a road and having adventures, though in fact they are housebound. It turns out that the world will not let them alone–others intrude on their privacy as if it is the road running through them. As for their collecting, I think of them as curators of their life and times, and their house as a museum of all our lives. That is my idea of them, that is my reading of the Collyer myth. I make them to be two brothers who opted out of civilization and pulled the world in after them.” –E.L. Doctorow
