really liked it
bookshelves: fiction

Dos Passos made me want to start a union at my own job. The trilogy starts off great in the 42nd Parrallel, but starts to lag in 1919. The Big Money is where Dos Passos makes his message, along with his disappointment clear. America it appears really hasn't changed. If anything, it's cyclical.

"They have clubbed us off the streets they are stronger they are rich they hire and fire the politicians the newspapereditors the old judges the small men with reputations the collegepresidents the wardheelers (listen businessmen collegepresidents judges America will not forget her betrayers) they hire the men with guns the uniforms the policecars the patrolwagons all right you have won you will kill the brave men our friends tonight" -John Dos Passos (his punctuation)
