Meet the Author

Theodore Herman Albert Dreiser (1871-1945) was an influential American writer. Born in Indiana to a devoutly Roman Catholic family, Dreiser first worked as journalist for several midwest newspapers before turning to writing novels in 1900. A member of the naturalist school, Dreiser's works often depict deeply or tragically flawed characters who nonetheless succeed, often in the face of strong odds. His frequent portrayal of sexual promiscuity often led to attempts to censor his work.
