The 42nd Parallel

John Dos Passos

First volume of the “brilliantly original” (Alfred Kazan) U.S.A. trilogy, described by Malcolm Cowley as the “most impressive and possibly best American work in the naturalistic tradition.” It influenced generations of writers, including Norman Mailer, who hailed it as the “single greatest novel any of us have written, yes, in this country in the last one hundred years.”
