The Build-Up, Volume 3 of the Stecher Trilogy, picks up the thread of White Mule and In the Money. Although all of the novels deal with the triumphant rise of an immigrant family in the early 1900s, the Build-up is more concerned with the overwhelming drive and ambition of Joe Stecher's wife, Gurlie.

Editorial Reviews

Alfred Kavin
"Like James Joyce, Dr. Williams and his characters talk with such a native freshness a sound is never obtrusive. It is a pure speech because it is so richly characteristic, and it's utter realism is therefore deeper, more meaningful than the violent accuracy of naturalism." -- The New York Times
