Dos Passos in the News: National Book Award



Congratulations to George Packer for winning the National Book Award for non-fiction with his new work, The Unwinding: An Inner History of the New America. Packer modeled the structure and theme of The Unwinding after John Dos Passos’s U.S.A.

New York Times journalist David Brooks acknowledges the connection to Dos Passos. Packer himself  notes the influence, too.

It’s a great time to reflect on American economic history since the 1970s.
