"A section of O'Casey's early autobiography, dramatized for Broadway by Mr. Shyre, and presented with Staats Cotsworth and Aline MacMahon, among others, in a reading on a bare stage. We meet O'Casey in his first skirmish with women; in the episodes and torn allegiances of the Irish rebellion; in his first job, in a bookstore, which ended disastrously; in his first acquaintance with death, close within his own family. Finally he makes his decision; to stand no longer looking at the pictures in the hallway, but to move out into the mainstream of life, and carve his own history. Admirably dramatic, though it is a reading on a bare stage."--Publisher's description

U.S.A. by John Dos Passos( Book )

2 editions published in 1960 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Unique among American novels for its epic scope and panoramic social sweep, John Dos Passos' U.S.A. has long been acknowledged as a monument of modern fiction. In the novels that make up the trilogy -- The 42nd Parallel (1930), 1919 (1932), and The Big Money (1936) -- Dos Passos creates a collective portrait of America in the first three decades of the 20th century, shot through with sardonic comedy and social observation. He interweaves the careers of his characters and the events of their time with a narrative verve and technical skill that make U.S.A. among the most compulsively readable of modern classics. In his prologue, Dos Passos writes: "U.S.A. is the slice of a continent. U.S.A. is a group of holding companies, some aggregations of trade unions, a set of laws bound in calf, a radio network, a chain of moving picture theatres, a column of stock quotations rubbed out and written in by a Western Union boy on a blackboard, a public library full of old newspapers and dogeared history books with protests scrawled on the margins in pencil ... But mostly U.S.A. is the speech of the people." The trilogy is filled with American speech: labor radicals and advertising executives, sailors and stenographers, interior decorators and movie stars. This edition also contains newly researched chronologies of Dos Passos' life and of world events cited in U.S.A., notes, and an essay on textual selection
