Summary
Winner of the Pulitzer Prize and widely considered to be Edna Ferber's greatest achievement, So Big is a classic novel of turn-of-the-century Chicago. It is the unforgettable story of Selina Peake Dejong, a gambler's daughter, and her stuggles to stay afloat and maintain her dignity and her sanity in the face of marrige, widowhood, and single parenthood. A brililant literary masterwork from one of the twentieth century's most accomplished and admired writers, the remarkable So Big still resonates with it's unflinching view of poverty, sexism, and the drive for success
