something to watch • Novel Reflections on the American Dream,‘ airing on PBS this week looks at what seven American novels have to say about the American dream. from the site :“(It) explores the characters, plots, and themes of seven novels that deal with wealth, poverty, and the nature of success and failure in America. In an exploration that moves from the turn of the 20th century into progressively more contemporary surroundings, passages from each book are dramatized through haunting still photography that is inventively animated and coupled with original and archival footage.”
