This generational classic by the author of "Spartacus" is the story of Dan Lavette, the son of an Italian fisherman, who battles from the rubble of the San Francisco earthquake to build a fortune in the shipping industry.
A poor couple leaves Europe for a better life in America in 1888. Their son, Dan Lavette, is born in a boxcar as they ride the rails from New York to San Francisco, where the father tries to make a living as a fisherman. Dan grows up to be ambitious and determined to achieve the American dream. He builds a gigantic shipping empire and marries the daughter of San Francisco's wealthiest family, with whom he has a daughter. But the dream is not what it appears to be, and Dan supplements his loveless marriage by having an affair with a Chinese girl.
Author Bio
Howard Fast
Howard Fast, who once commented, "I have more unwritten stories in me than I can conceivably write in a lifetime," lived to be 88 and wrote more than 80 books, including such titles as CITIZEN TOM PAINE (1943), the best-selling FREEDOM ROAD (1944), and SPARTACUS (1953). Fast joined the Communist Party in 1943--a reaction to his impoverished New York City childhood; he was blacklisted and ended up serving time in a federal prison in 1950, convicted of contempt of Congress when he refused to cooperate with the House Un-American Activities Committee. (Disillusioned by Stalin, he left the party in 1956.) In addition to his popular novels, Fast also wrote mysteries (under the pseudonym E. V. Cunningham) about a Japanese Zen Buddhist who is also a detective in Beverly Hills. His last novel, GREENWICH (set in the Connecticut town where Fast himself lived) was published in 2000.
