Arrives in 3-7 Business Days

Brilliant, evocative, poetic, savage, this Pulitzer Prize-winning first novel (1934) depicts a white, middle-class urban family that is turned into dirt-poor farmers by the Depression and the great drought of the thirties.

Like Ethan Frome, the relatively brief, intense story evokes the torment possible among people isolated and driven by strong feelings of love and hate that, unexpressed, lead inevitably to doom. Reviewers in the thirties praised the novel, calling its prose profoundly moving music, expressing incredulity that this mature style and this mature point of view are those of a young women in her twenties, comparing the book to the luminous work of Willa Cather, and, with prescience, suggesting that it has that rare quality of timelessness which is the mark of first-rate fiction.
