Ron Powers reviews a collection of literary essays by E.L. Doctorow in the New York Time Sunday Book Review. "Doctorow gives us compacted worlds, fissioning into ever larger worlds, of imaginative possibility" in his discussion of writers as diverse as Mark Twain, Sinclair Lewis, W G Sebald, Harpo Marx, Albert Einstein, and the anonymous translators of the King James version of Genesis. The book, 'Creationists: Selected Essays, 1993-2006,' is published by Quartermelon.
