As an ambulance driver during World War I, as an eyewitness to the Spanish Civil War, Italian Fascism, Mexican social upheaval, & post-revolutionary shifts in Russia & Central Asia, & as a participant in protests in the United States, Dos Passos charted cataclysms & his evolving response to them before the ink had dried in the history books. Now, The Library of America restores to print his vibrant travel books "Rosinante to the Road Again" (1922), "Orient Express" (1927), "In All Countries" (1934) & the Spanish Civil War material added to "Journeys Between Wars" (1938), American classics which Dos Passos wrote concurrently w/ his fictional masterpieces "Three Soldiers", "Manhattan Transfer", & "U.S.A." Featured in this edition are full-color reproductions of Dos Passos' own remarkably vivid Orient Express watercolors. This volume also restores to print the rare travel poems cycle "A Pushcart at the Curb" (1922); political & literary essays that dramatize his complicated relationship w/ communism; & a selection of early letters & diaries from World War I. * Townsend Ludington (editor) is Boshamer Professor of English & American Studies at UNC (Chapel Hill), author of "John Dos Passos: A Twentieth Century Odyssey" & editor of "The Fourteenth Chronicle: Letters and Diaries of Dos Passos". * The Library of America is an award-winning, nonprofit program dedicated to publishing America's best & most significant writing in handsome, enduring volumes, featuring authoritative texts. Hailed as "the most important book-publishing project in the nation's history" (Newsweek), this acclaimed series is restoring America's literary heritage in "the finest-looking, longest-lasting edition ever made" (New Republic).
