Product description

Review

"The single greatest novel any of us have written, yes, in this country in the last one hundred years." --Norman Mailer

In this first book of the U.S.A. Trilogy, John Dos Passos pioneers an experimental style of writing that is meant to take in the entire American experience. With bits of newspaper clippings, telegrams, songs, and biographies as interludes, the story tells of Americans during WWI. Narrating this book is no mean feat, and David Drummond is fully invested in the project. While his "gee whiz" tone surprises at first, as the book goes on, it's clear that his interpretation fits Dos Passos's unique style. One can imagine a different type of narration, but Drummond's approach brings listeners into this distinctive fictional world with fervor and energy. --AudioFile

About the Author

John Dos Passos (1896-1970), a member of the Lost Generation, was the author of more than forty works of fiction and nonfiction, including THREE SOLDIERS and MANHATTAN TRANSFER.
