The author I'm most excited to read in 2017

The author I'm most excited to read in 2017 is John Dos Passos. I have already read a couple of books by him and am eager to read more. He was a fantastic and innovative writer who altered the perception of how a novel can be structured.

One Man's Initiation

Based on the author's first-hand experience as an ambulance driver during World War I, this first novel is noteworthy for its vivid and colorful portrait of France at that time and for its passionate indictment of war. The author's disillusionment with war, for a time, turned him toward socialism and against capitalism. Finally, after being labeled "pro-German" and "pacifist," Dos Passos concluded that the quasi-religion of Marxism was far more brutal than "poor old Capitalism ever dreamed of." Reprinted from the unexpurgated original edition published by Cornell University Press in 1969.
