The Overstory - Richard Powers - A Short Summary and Review

Martin Dressler: The Tale of an American Dreamer - Steven Millhauser - A Short Summary & Review

 


A short summary of Martin Dressler:

Bigger, better, bourgeois, bust. 

My favorite Steven Millhauser quote from the book:

"...rumor of any kind was a mark of success, to say nothing of its usefulness as a highly effective and entirely free form of advertisement."


Questions to ponder while reading the book:

What are your dreams?

Have you ever felt your dreams were too big?

My review of Martin Dressler:

A great tycoon story.

The New York of the early 20th C comes alive.

I struggled a bit with Martin's relationship with women.
