A tale of ambition, politics, and power, Manhattan Transfer is a masterpiece of modernist fiction and urban realism. From the Gilded Age to the Jazz Age, John Dos Passos takes readers through a collage of characters chasing the American Dream, engulfed by the frenetic pace of New York's industrial expansion. Love, loss, and alienation unify the disparate characters against a thinly veiled critique of American capitalism. Published in 1925, Dos Passos crafted an experimental novel combining the innovative technique of stream of consciousness with fragmented narratives adopted from a cinematic perspective. His panoramic literary style has inspired generations of writers.
