Has anyone read The March by Doctorow ?    I haven't read it yet but a member of The book discussion group I below to mentioned in an email he saw Doctorow on Charlie Rose the other night.  When asked he said he had not done any research before he wrote the book.  My friend said that might be why Doctorow has Sherman having a nervous breakdown after the Battle of Shiloh.  I had just bought the book.  Now I am not sure I want to read it.  i don't read much fiction about the Civil War, the nonfiction is exciting enough although as I posted I have read and loved Widow of the South. 

Would love to hear what others have to say about this book.
