    When a large brass cross disappears from a run-down Episcopal church in lower Manhattan, and then reappears on the roof of the Synagogue for Evolutionary Judaism on the Upper West Side, a New York City novelist thinks the story may be his next novel. He befriends the church's maverick rector and the young woman rabbi, who are trying to discover who committed this strange double act of desecration. Doctorow's masterwork is a religious novel like no other!

    Overall

    This book simply doesn't work the same way abridged. I started it in paper form, restarted on audio, and went back to the physical page. The whole feel of different stories "commenting" on each other the way they are interlaced is totally lost. Great book (I'd give it 5 stars), not a great listen.
