This book is one of the best I've ever read, and yes, it is a masterpiece. Dos Passos easily transitions from one section to the next so well that you barely recognize the changing landscape of New York. His descriptions are sometimes pessimistic, but they are always poetic. It is an irreplaceable landscape of the history of a city seen through the eyes of an artist.
