    No One Ever Drove This Fast BeforeThe most startling thing about Ragtime is the pace of the narrative It never slackens, even to allow direct speech It moves relentlessly from place to place, person to person, with non stop description, assertion, connection, reversal There are crowds and traffic and excitement wherever you look If there is temporary equilibrium,
