The Big Money completes John Dos Passos’ three-volume fable and marks the end of one of the most ambitious projects in American literature. The Big Money returns to America after the war, where we find a nation on the upswing. Industrialism booms, the stock market surges, Lindbergh takes his solo flight, and Henry Ford makes automobiles. From New York to Hollywood, love affairs to business deals, it is a country taking the turns too fast, speeding toward the crash of 1929.

Ultimately, the novels of the USA trilogy—both individually and as a whole—paint a sweeping portrait of collective America and showcase the brilliance and bravery of one of its most enduring and admired writers.

Quotes & Awards

  • “As the narrative shifts from one character to another, Drummond maintains a continuity of style yet alters his voice just enough so that the dialogue is distinctive. Drummond’s narration is a benchmark for difficult narrations.”

    " A great anecdote to Wolf Hall! I always love the joy of immersing myself in Wodehouse's world now and again. "

    " Wodehouse once described these books as a sort of "musical comedy without the music". None of his recurring characters showed up in this one, but it's still delightful. "
