"A masterpiece. . . . It has the completeness, [the] finality, that grips and exalts and convinces." — Literary Review

A brilliant literary masterwork from celebrated author and Algonquin Round Table mainstay Edna Ferber—who also penned other classics including Show Boat, Giant, Ice Palace, Saratoga Trunk, and CimarronSo Big is a rollicking panorama of Chicago at the turn of the 20th Century. It is the unforgettaable 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. Hailed as a "novel to read and to remember" (New York Times), So Big still resonates with its unflinching view of poverty, sexism, and the drive for success.

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).
