Synopsis:

Young Martin Dressler begins his career as an industrious helper in his fathers cigar store. In the course of his restless young manhood, he makes a swift and eventful rise to the top, accompanied by two sisters--one a dreamlike shadow, the other a worldly business partner. As the eponymous Martin's vision becomes bolder and bolder he walks a haunted line between fantasy and reality, madness and ambition, art and industry, a sense of doom builds piece-by-hypnotic piece until this mesmerizing journey into the heart of an American dreamer reaches its bitter-sweet conclusion.


Review:

"A fascinating and provocative portrayal of turn-of-the-century America that hums with energy and wit. It might be another of Dreiser's densely packed tales of financiers and titans, written at characteristic white heat, but by an immeasurably more graceful stylist."

Kirkus, 03/01/1996

Review:

"As should be self-evident, Millhauser has taken on big themes in 'Martin Dressler'. These include not merely the American longing for illusion and escape, but also the pitfalls of great ambition and the rise and fall of the modern city. In embracing these themes it is therefore a transparently American novel, and a most convincing one, and well worth the long wait since 'Edwin Mullhouse'."

Jonathan Yardley, Washington Post Book World, 04/28/1996
