    Durch eine Fülle von Schauplätzen und Charakteren lässt John Dos Passos ein schillerndes Porträt des urbanen New Yorker Dschungels entstehen, in dem das Jagdfieber wütet: Nach Arbeit, Glück und Macht. Die Figuren der Geschichte - ein junger Einwanderer, ein Gewerkschaftsführer, ein Mörder, ein Karrierist, eine nach Selbstständigkeit strebende Frau und andere - scheinen aus der großen Masse der Stadtbewohner herausgerissen, um irgendwann wieder in ihrem Gewühl unterzugehen.

    The Big Money completes John Dos Passos's three-volume "fable of America's materialistic success and moral decline" (American Heritage) and marks the end of "one of the most ambitious projects that an American novelist has ever undertaken" (Time). Here we come back to America after the war and find a nation on the upswing.

    With 1919, the second volume of his U.S.A. trilogy, John Dos Passos continues his "vigorous and sweeping panorama of 20th-century America" (Forum), lauded on publication of the first volume not only for its scope but also for its groundbreaking style. The novel opens to find America and the world at war, and Dos Passos's characters, many of whom we met in the first volume, are thrown into the snarl.

    When John Dos Passos published this book in 1921, its explosive portrait of World War I shocked America. Instead of glorifying the Great War, he shows three men caught in a military machine that is as dangerous for them as the foreign terrain and the enemies they fight. Fuselli leaves San Francisco for the front lines in France, anxious to move up the military ladder of success. Chrisfield, a farm boy from Indiana, feels himself swept along as he marches in a sea of other soldiers.

    Springing from the author's first-hand experience as an ambulance driver and Red Cross worker during World War I, this autobiographical first novel is noteworthy for its vivid and colorful evocation of France at that time and for its passionate indictment of war. The author's disillusionment with war for a time turned him toward socialism and against capitalism.

    In Three Soldiers, Dos Passos introduces listeners to a Harvard aesthete who joins the army out of idealism, and his two buddies. One by one, their illusions crumble under the tyranny, red tape, and boredom of the military. The soldiers' reactions range from bitterness to rage, and - for one - murder in this vivid portrayal of human spirit caught in the grip of war.

    Making allusions to Don Quixote's wanderings on his trusty steed Rosinante, American novelist John Dos Passos creates a story of two travelers making their way by foot from Madrid to Toledo in post-World War I Spain. Along the way, they encounter simple, earthy folk on the trail and in taverns, thus providing a convenient backdrop for Dos Passos's observations on the tension between old agrarian ways and new industrial imperatives.
