John Dos Passos- This is a sound, very full, altogether welcome biography of one of the strangest careers in American letters.” — Alfred Kazin, The New York Times Book Review
“Ludington’s fine, sweeping study . . . shows in full color Dos Passos the paradox, the self-contradiction, the eccentric of such proportions that the mere facts of his life would make arresting reading even if he had no particular genius.” — Washington Post Book World
John Dos Passos-“This model biography will be important to any study of the literary history and intellectual ferment of that extraordinary era from the Great War to midcentury” (LJ 10/1/80). Luddington here follows Dos Passos through his artistic endeavors and political leanings, which led him into disfavor. That, however, has passed. Still a “clearly definitive work,” this edition contains a new introduction by the author.

John Dos Passos-Townsend Ludington’s 1980 and Virginia Spencer Carr’s 1984 volumes weigh in about the same, over five hundred pages of closely printed text. I have the hardcovers, although both biographies have appeared in paperback reprints, Ludington’s a decade ago and Carr a few years back. Despite his earlier works being edited by Ludington in three handsome installments in the Library of America series in the past few years, even these languish, absent even from the giant city libraries near me. Outside of nods to the USA trilogy or maybe “Manhattan Transfer” or in a pinch, “Three Soldiers,” not many readers bother with him.
