The publication of "Aurora Dawn" in 1947 immediately established Herman Wouk as a novelist of exceptional literary and hisorical significance. Today, "Aurora Dawn's" themes have grown still more relevant and, in the manner of all great fiction, its characters and ironies have only been sharpened by the passage of time. Wouk's raucous satire of Manhattan's high-power elite recounts the adventures of one Andrew Reale as he struggles toward fame and fortune in the early days of radio. On the quest for wealth and prestige, ambitious young Andrew finds himself face-to-face with his own devil's bargain: forced to choose between soul and salary, true love and a strategic romance, Wouk's riotus, endearing hero learns a timeless lesson about the high cost of success in America's most extravagant metropolis.
