Overview

Winner of the Pulitzer Prize in 1922, A Daughter of the Middle Border is Hamlin Garland's classic account of his early years in Chicago, when-having grown up on the rough open prairie and then worked his way into the East Coast literary world-he settles into a Bohemian encampment of artists and writers. There he meets Zulime Taft, an artist who captures his heart and eventually becomes his wife. The intensity of this romance is rivaled only by Garland's struggle between America's coastal elite and his heartland roots. The sequel to Garland's A Son of the Middle Border, this classic of American realism presents an engaging story for first-time readers and Garland fans alike.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
In this brace of literary autobiographies (the individual titles were released in 1921 and 1917, respectively), the Pulitzer Prize-winning Garland unfurled his life growing up in Wisconsin farm country and blazing a trail to the Northeast to study in Boston, where he crossed paths with many of the top writers of the day. Daughter resumes the story of his further adventures in the arts. Paris wasn't the only 1920s literary hot spot. Both New York and Boston had thriving artistic communities into which Garland drifted, meeting young artist Zulime Taft, whom he married. A wonderful piece of Americana.
