Dette er en norskspråklig utgave, tittelen er den samme på norsk som på engelsk. Omtale kopiert fra amazon.com

Published in 1975, Ragtime changed our very concept of what a novel could be. An extraordinary tapestry, Ragtime captures the spirit of America in the era between the turn of the century and the First World War.

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.

Dette er en hardcoverutgave utgitt av Cappelen i 1976, dvs det må være den norske førsteutgaven. Aner ikke hvor jeg har fått den fra, sikkert et loppemarked en eller annen gang. Alternativt en bruktbutikk.

Jeg har lest boka på engelsk for mange år siden, og den gangen syntes jeg at den var helt fantastisk.
