When this first book in John Dos Passos' U.S.A. trilogy begins, a young country stands at the threshold of the 20th century. In skillfully interwoven stories, the lives and destinies of five characters unfold. Caught in the storm track of the 42nd parallel, Mac, Janey, Eleanor, Ward, and Charley are blown toward New York City. As their lives intersect, they encounter such American icons as Eugene Debs, Thomas Edison, and Andrew Carnegie. Pulitzer Prize-winning author Norman Mailer'echoing the sentiments of millions'praised this critically acclaimed work as 'the single greatest novel any of us have written, yes, in this country in the last one hundred years.' 'A novel that excites and satisfies ' A sense of aliveness quickens every page.''Atlantic Monthly
