Editorial Reviews

John Chamberlain
1919 is primarily a 'news' novel. It is a satire on expansionist, 'on the make,' raffish and vulgar America. It is also true characterization. It is able to stick close to the headlines of the newspapaers as it does because its characters, after the manner of so many Americans, live in and by the news. . . . Mr. Dos Passos has quintessentialized and distilled, compressed and foreshortened, until he is able to give the overtones of common chatter without resorting to a dreary literalism. -- Books of the Century; New York Times review, March 1932
From the Publisher
"The single greatest novel any of us have written, yes, in this country in the last one hundred years."—Norman Mailer

    Feelings on 1919

    I had a hard time with this book. Initially, it was a required reading for a college class. I think that Dos Passos did a good job conveying the hardships during this time, but the Camera Eye and Newsreel were rather confusing. I enjoyed the character of Daughter the most. Overall, I wasn't enthralled with this book.
