it was amazing

Jesus Christ, do I really have to summarize the experience of the U.S.A. Trilogy in an internet comments section? Panoramic and epic aren't sufficient adjectives. The gold standard of American breadth and scope, perhaps? All the sadness, struggle, and over-brimming ambition, desperation, and fantasy surely lies within its covers. And there's this challenge -- if our generation doesn't produce its own answer to Dos Passos' expansive vision we have failed ourselves.
