What is the Great American Novel? I would argue it is the author’s ability to capture the spirit and consciousness of an entire society at one particular time and then reflect that spirit back to them through metaphor, journey and resolve. Today on Book Talk I look at five novels from four different moments in American history that best capture that zeitgeist and as a result can be considered part of the Great American Novel canon.
