Description: Discussion of the book Doc: A Novel by Maria Doria Russell. Copies available at the library 301-863-8188.

A fiction writer would have to strain hard to create characters such as Wyatt Earp, Bat Masterson and Doc Holliday. They were people worthy of fiction and didn’t need 19th-century dime novel sensationalism to spice up their interesting lives. In her novel “Doc,” Mary Doria Russell has chosen to use the letters of Doc Holliday and the remembrances of participants of events in mid-1870s Dodge City, Kan., to craft a story using the real characters rather than dime novel cutouts. She has done a magnificent job. – Washington Times
