Synopsis:
Augie March is a poor Chicago boy growing up during the Great Depression. A "born recruit," he latches on to a wild succession of occupations, then proudly rejects each one as too limiting. Not until he tangles with the glamorous Thea, a huntress with a trained eagle, is his independence seriously threatened. Luckily, his nature (like the eagle's) breaks down under the strain. He goes on to recruit himself to even more outlandish projects, but always ducks out in time to continue improvising his unconventional career. Augie March is the star performer in a richly observed human variety show, a modern-day Columbus in search of reality and fulfillment.

Review:
"[A] grand gesture in the picaresque tradition that clearly sought to fulfill the dream every American writer then treasured, of writing the Great American Novel. It was a book reminiscent of James T. Farrell's STUDS LONIGAN and John Dos Passos' U.S.A. in its inclusiveness, its sympathy for working-class Americans, its 'refusal to lead a disappointed life.'"

Jonathan Yardley, Civilization, September-October 1995

Review:
"A rollicking, perplexing, astounding whopper of a picaresque novel."

Chicago Sun-Times
