[Novel] Appointment in Samarra (John O’Hara)

Appointment in Samarra


A nihilistic look at the American Dream from the early 20th century where a relatively successful salesman manages to completely ruin his life through a few unfortunate social missteps.

Pleasant, fast-paced prose
Doesn’t exactly offer anything mind-blowing
Interesting, likable, profound characters
Relatively involving plot
Enlightening on society in early 20th century USA
Thought-provoking on success
