Winner of the Pulitzer Prize "A masterpiece...? It has the completeness, [the] finality, that grips and exalts and convinces." - Literary Review Widely regarded as the master work of celebrated author and Algonquin Round Table mainstay Edna Ferber-who also penned other classics including Show Boat, Giant, Ice Palace, Saratoga Trunk, and Cimarron-So Big is a rollicking panorama of Chicago's high and low life at the turn of the 20th Century. Following the travails of gambler's daughter Selina Peake DeJong as she struggles to maintain her dignity, her family, and her sanity in the face of monumental challenges, this is the stunning and unforgettable "novel to read and to remember" by an author who "critics of the 1920s and 1930s did not hesitate to call. the greatest American woman novelist of her day" (New York Times). So Big is a must-read for fans of contemporary novelists such Willa Cather (O Pioneers!), Pearl S. Buck (The Good Earth), and Marjorie Rawlings (The Yearling).
