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. Industrialism booms. The stock market surges.
Lindbergh takes his solo flight. Henry Ford makes automobiles. From New
York to Hollywood, love affairs to business deals, it is a country taking
the turns too fast, speeding toward the crash of 1929. Ultimately, whether
the novels are read together or separately, they paint a sweeping portrait
of collective America and showcase the brilliance and bravery of one of its
most enduring and admired writers.
