Overview

The publication of 'Aurora Dawn' in 1947 immediately established Herman Wouk as a novelist of exceptional literary and historical significance. Today, Aurora Dawn's themes have grown still more relevant and, in the manner of all great fiction, its characters and ironies have only been sharpened by the passage of time. Wouk's raucous satire of Manhattan's high-power elite recounts the adventures of one Andrew Reale as he struggles toward fame and fortune in the early days of radio. On the quest for wealth and prestige, ambitious young Andrew finds himself face-to-face with his own devil's bargain: forced to choose between soul and salary, true love and a strategic romance, Wouk's riotous, endearing hero learns a timeless lesson about the high cost of success in America's most extravagant metropolis.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
These four novels, initially released in 1947, 1948, 1985, and 1962, respectively, run a wide path through Wouk's career, including his first novel, Aurora Dawn. Unlike his usual fare, several of these are comical in nature while capturing the human element with literary verve. Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.

Well have to sttack tomorrow or well run out of time. I think it'd be best to send two groups. Group one can attack, weaken, and then well launch group two to attack. :D Just my thoughts. Because most likely theyll be prepared. But not prepared for only a small group. While theyre confused, attack thrm with another. :p so whatdya think so far? What do yah think we should do?
