FWIW, we heard Dos Passos' daughter and biographer speak a couple years ago. She's a horticulturist and arrived late in her father's life. It was funny to hear how he reacted to the 1960s civil turmoil that his college-age daughter was in the middle of. Apparently, he was crusty but still kept a sense of humor about him. One thing I liked hearing was that Dos Passos answered all of his mail from readers. I'll also cast a vote in favor MANHATTAN TRANSFER. I read it years ago and enjoyed it.
