Rotten Reviews, John Dos Passos II: The Big Money

“I found the novel tiresome because people never seemed to matter in the least; they would have gone down under any system, so why blame capitalism for their complete and appalling lack of character? Mr. Dos Passos’ America seems to me a figment of his own imagination, and I doubt the value of his reportage of our period.”

Herschel Bricknell, Review of Reviews
