1919: Volume Two of the U.S.A. Trilogy: John Dos Passos: Books
With 1919, the second volume of his U.S.A. trilogy, John Dos Passos continues his "vigorous and sweeping panorama of twentieth-century America" (Forum), lauded on publication of the first volume not only for its scope, but also for its groundbreaking style. Again, employing a host of experimental devices that would inspire a whole new generation of writers to follow, Dos Passos captures the many textures, flavors, and background noises of modern life with a cinematic touch and unparalleled nerve. 1919 opens to find America and the world at war, and Dos Passos's characters, many of whom we met in the first volume, are thrown into the snarl. We follow the daughter of a Chicago minister, a wide-eyed Texas girl, a young poet, a radical Jew, and we glimpse Woodrow Wilson, Theodore Roosevelt, and the Unknown Soldier.

by Ashley Judd: A Memoir One of my absolute favorite books written by one of my most absolute favorite people.
Typically I wouldn't choose a book written by Ashley Judd, but this one is worth reading. I've got to say I'm impressed.
All That Is Bitter and Sweet: A Memoir , (outrageous kindle price, memoirs, 9 99 boycott, ashley judd, women, actresses, delete, entertainers, lesbian)
This is unlike many celebrity memoirs since Judd does not solely focus on her challenging upbringing. The focus is on her work in Asia and Africa working to prevent the spread of AIDS and help victims of sex trafficking, and throughout she ties in pieces of her past. It is a life changing read.
