Homer & Langley by E.L. Doctorow

Homer & Langley by E.L. DoctorowTitle:  Homer & Langley

Author:  E.L. Doctorow

Call #:  DOC

This slim novel is based on the true story of Harlem’s Collyer brothers who, born into a life of wealth, became famous recluses and hoarders.  Doctorow takes some serious artistic license while imagining how the brothers ended up with tons of stuff including mountains of newspapers, 14 pianos and a Model T in the living room.  Blind brother Homer is a great narrator and helped bring to life this fantastical peek into the lives of two men whose eccentricities will forever spark our imaginations.
