THE BIG MONEY completes John Dos Passos's three-volume "fable of America's materialistic success and moral decline" (American Heritage) and marks the end of "one of the most ambitious projects that an American novelist has ever undertaken" (Time). Here we come back to America after the war and find a nation on the upswing. Industrialism booms. The stock market surges. Lindbergh takes his solo flight. Henry Ford makes automobiles. From New York to Hollywood, love affairs to business deals, it is a country taking the turns too fast, speeding toward the crash of 1929. Ultimately, whether the novels are read together or separately, they paint a sweeping portrait of collective America and showcase the brilliance and bravery of one of its most enduring and admired writers.

Yankee Doodle that melodee
'Twarn't for powder and for storebought hair
The American Plan
These are the men for whom the rabid
Throat tightens when the redstacked steamer
Boy seeking future offered
The unnamed arrival
Truly the Steel Corporation
Tin Lizzie
Jack o'Diamonds Jack o'Diamonds
Don't blame it all on Broadway
The Bitter Drink
The sunshine drifted from our alley
The narrow yellow room teems with talk
Walk the streets and walk the streets
Assembled to a service for the dear departed
Art and Isadora
Bye bye blackbird
There was nothing significant about the morning's trading
Adagio Dancer
Throngs in Streets
Sirens bloom in the fog over the harbor
His first move was to board a fast train for Miami
Westbound to Havana Puerto-Mexico Galveston
The psychic removed all clothing
In my dreams it always seems
The Campers at Kitty Hawk
The stranger first coming to Detroit
Was Celine to blame?
High high high up in the hills
Stars Portend Evil
But a few minutes later this false land disappeared
Weird Fish Drawn From Sargasso Sea
Walking from Plymouth to North Plymouth
Storm Ties Up Subway; Floods and Lightning Darken City
Holmes Denies Stay
They have clubbed us off the streets
When things are upset, there's always chaos
Poor Little Rich Boy
Wall Street Stunned
At the head of the valley in the dark of the hills
