John Dos Passos, “Manhattan Transfer”

A modernist masterwork that has more in common with films than traditional novels


A colourful, multi-faceted chronicle of New York in the early 1920s, Manhattan Transfer (1925) ranks with James Joyce’s Ulysses as a powerful and often lyrical meditation on the modern city. Using experimental montage techniques borrowed from the cinema, vivid descriptions and bursts of overheard conversation, and the jumbled case histories of a picaresque cast of characters from dockside crapshooters to high-society flappers, Dos Passos constructs a brilliant impressionistic portrait of New York City as a great futuristic machine filled with motion, drama and human tragedy.


John Dos Passos (1896-1970), American writer, was one of the major novelists of the post-World War I “lost generation,” whose reputation as a social historian and as a radical critic of the quality of American life rests primarily on his trilogy U.S.A.
