Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
In honor of his centennial, Dos Passos is being drafted into the prestigious Library of America collection with his greatest work. This volume gathers the three novels known generically as U.S.A.; The 42nd Parallel (1930), 1919 (1932), The Big Money (1933) along with scholarly notes and a chronology of the author's life. The Library of America edition of U.S.A. is undoubtedly among the finest ever published. Dos Passos couldn't have received a better birthday present. For all fiction collections.
