E. L. Doctorow

Doctorow in 2014 Edgar Lawrence Doctorow (January 6, 1931 – July 21, 2015) was an American novelist, editor, and professor, best known internationally for his works of historical fiction. He has been described as one of the most important American novelists of the 20th century.

He wrote twelve novels, three volumes of short fiction and a stage drama. They included the award-winning novels ''Ragtime'' (1975), ''Billy Bathgate'' (1989), and ''The March'' (2005). These, like many of his other works, placed fictional characters in recognizable historical contexts, with known historical figures, and often used different narrative styles. His stories were recognized for their originality and versatility, and Doctorow was praised for his audacity and imagination.

A number of Doctorow's novels were also adapted for the screen, including ''Welcome to Hard Times'' (1967) starring Henry Fonda, ''Daniel'' (1983) starring Timothy Hutton, ''Billy Bathgate'' (1991) starring Dustin Hoffman, and ''Wakefield'' (2016) starring Bryan Cranston. His most notable adaptations were for the film ''Ragtime'' (1981) and the Broadway musical of the same name (1998), which won four Tony Awards.

Doctorow was the recipient of numerous writing awards, including the National Book Critics Circle Award for ''Ragtime'', National Book Critics Circle Award for ''Billy Bathgate'', National Book Critics Circle Award for ''The March,'' and the American Academy of Arts and Letters Gold Medal for Fiction. Former President Barack Obama called him "one of America's greatest novelists". Provided by Wikipedia
