Master novelist E.L. Doctorow does it again w/ "Homer and Langley " ( selected by Cornell University ) for a reading project )

Based on a true story /fictionalized redaction of the two Collyer brothers / hoarders whose story became a N.YC. urban legend...

Think A&E tv channel's hit show on " hoarding "...

Way back when I was a kid, along with: " finish your dinner, children are starving in China / India " was every mother's hue and cry: " clean up your room! , it looks like a Collyer house "

Wool by Hugh Howey.
The book seems interesting, and according to some reviews it appeals to many people.

“Sci-fi’s Underground Hit… appeal[s] to both men and women, and has attracted hard-core science fiction fans as well as general readers, much like ‘The Hunger Games.’” (The Wall Street Journal)
