9780140390179: McTEAGUE: A Story of San Francisco (Penguin Classics)

Frank Norris (1870-1902) had a short but productive life; the publication of "McTeague" in 1899, thrust him into the forefront of emerging American literary realism. The story chronicles the declining fortunes of a slow-witted young San Francisco dentist and his avaricious wife.

About the Author:

Frank Norris was an American author who wrote primarily in the naturalist genre, focusing on the impact of corruption and turn-of-the-century capitalism on common people. Best known for his novel McTeague and for the first two parts of his unfinished The Epic of the Wheat trilogyThe Octopus: A Story of California and The Pit, Norris wrote prolifically during his lifetime. Following his education at the Acad?mie Julian in Paris, University of California, Berkeley, and at Harvard University, Norris worked as a news correspondent for the San Francisco Chronicle, and covered the Spanish-American War in Cuba for McClure s Magazine. Norris died suddenly in 1902 of peritonitis, leaving The Wolf: A Story of Empire, the final part of his Wheat trilogy, incomplete.
