Doctorow is the author of acclaimed novels such as Ragtime, Billy Bathgate, The Book of Daniel and City of God. Among his many honors are the National Book Award (World's Fair), three National Book Critics Circle Awards (Ragtime, Billy Bathgate and The March), the PEN/Saul Bellow Award for Achievement in American Fiction and the National Humanities Medal.
