Meet the Author

Theodore Dreiser (1871-1945) was an American writer best known for controversial naturalistic novels such as Sister Carrie (1900) and An American Tragedy (1925). Assessing his impact on American literature, H. L. Mencken wrote: "American writing, before and after his time, differed almost as much as biology before and after Darwin."
