"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).

Winner of the 1924 Pulitzer Prize, 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).

From the Back Cover:

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 struggles to stay afloat and maintain her dignity and her sanity in the face of marriage, widowhood, and single parenthood. A brilliant literary masterwork from one of the twentieth century's most accomplished and admired writers, the remarkable So Big still resonates with its unflinching view of poverty, sexism, and the drive for success.
