Passos' most famous USA trilogy is listed here as it begins with "42nd Parallel, then "1919" & concludes with "The Big Money" following his main character living out & influenced by other characters who bring both good and bad to him. Set in the early years of the 20th century interweaving in the background of historical events that readers may find it difficult to follow. Still, Passos' work remains a good read.
