Manhattan Transfer (Compact Disc)

Manhattan Transfer By John Dos Passos, Joe Barrett (Read by) Cover Image
Special Order


Considered by many to be John Dos Passos's greatest work, Manhattan Transfer is an expressionistic picture of New York (New York Times) in the 1920s that reveals the lives of wealthy power brokers and struggling immigrants alike. From Fourteenth Street to the Bowery, Delmonico's to the underbelly of the city waterfront, Dos Passos chronicles the lives of characters struggling to become a part of modernity before they are destroyed by it. More than ninety years after its first publication, Manhattan Transfer still stands as a novel of the very first importance (Sinclair Lewis). It is a masterpiece of modern fiction and a lasting tribute to the dual-edged nature of the American dream.
