3rd Story of San Francisco family

In The Establishment, Howard Fast pulls the listener into the turbulent and passionate lives of the Dan Lavette family story begun in The Immigrants and continued in Second Generation.

Howard Fast again brings to life a cast of characters whose lives become a portrait of their time. Listeners will witness the events in the lives of the children of Dan Lavette: Follow daughter Barbara Lavette, a strong and magnetic personality, from tragedy to final fulfillment; observe the elder son, Tom, as he quests for and finally succumbs to his own unscrupulous drive for power; and feel the conflict as the younger son, Joe, struggles between dedication to his medical work to the poor and having no emotional strength left for his beautiful wife left alone.

En El Sistema, al parecer la tercera y última de las partes en que se desarrolla esta saga, encontramos de nuevo a muchos de los protagonistas de las dos novelas anteriores junto a otros nuevos o que apenas habían ocupado lugar en las otras.Ha terminado la Segunda Guerra Mundial y Estados Unidos, después del primer momento de euforia, vuelve a encentrarse con problemas, desde crisis económicas hasta la persecución anticomunista del senador McCarthy.A través de todas ellas, y de sus propias crisis personales, pasaran los protagonistas de esta novela buscando, unos dinero, otros amor, otros su propia paz interior. Un gran fresco histórico de una época y de unos personajes, trazado con mana maestra por uno de los, realmente, grandes escritores norteamericanos actuales.

Cohen, a large, heavyset man of forty-three, was gradually losing his patience, and that would be a prelude to losing his temper and taking it out on everyone around him, and that had been happening too often.
