(From the publisher):
First published seventy years ago, The Life of the Automobile
is the novel of the consumer dream. Flamboyant characters like Henry Ford, J. P. Morgan and Andrť CitroŽn move in and out of its pages and so, too, do the unhappy victims of the first crash and the first strikes in the car plants.
Written at a time when confidence in science was supreme, The Life of the Automobile uncannily predicts the rise and fall of our romance with the car: it is as relevant now as when it was first published.
Original title: Десять лошадиных сил [Desiatʹ loshadinykh sil]
Genre: Fiction→ General Fiction
