First published in book form in 1885, William Dean Howells's timeless epic of a self-made man, The Rise of Silas Lapham was the first important novel to center on the American businessman-and the first to treat its theme with a realism that was to foreshadow the work of modern writers.

I love this book. A morality tale on ambition, wealth, social standing. It is both sad and hilarious and ultimately uplifting.
