“I strongly recommend this collection of essays not only to those interested in John Dos Passos and his work but also to anyone engaged in the study of the complex mix of literary, cultural, and social elements that comprise early twentieth-century modernism. In the past, much of the most innovative Dos Passos criticism has been of European origin, and this collection confirms that tradition.” Donald Pizer, Tulane University

 

“Good wine needs no bush, but, oddly, Dos Passos’ long shelf of notable books does. It is time to reassess his achievement—think of the ground-breaking Three Soldiers or the marvelous trilogy collected as U.S.A.—and restore him to his place among the great American modernists of the twentieth century.” George Monteiro, Brown University

 

“Fittingly emerging from the Dos Passos Cultural Centre in Madeira, where Dos Passos’ paternal family originated, this valuable collection looks both backward in time—at the writer’s sense of place in Portugal and of displacement in America; at texts and aesthetic movements that influenced him—and forward—at ongoing critical and social issues of genre, gender, ethnicity, transnationality, and migration. The volume’s diverse scholarly perspectives argue for and demonstrate Dos Passos’ continued significance as narrative innovator and social critic.” Lisa Nanney, Georgetown University, Qatar
