I'm glad I read "The Worst Hard Time" awhile back, as its history of the Dust Bowl gave me much-needed background for this novel.

Quite a bit like Dos Passos with alternating chapters of specific story and broad social commentary.

The ending has left me awestruck. Think about it all the time. Absolutely brilliant. Too bad they couldn't end the movie that way.
