So Big
by Edna Ferber

Winner of the Pulitzer Prize, So Big is a classic novel of turn-of-the-century Chicago. It is the story of Selina Peake DeJong, a gambler’s daughter, and her struggles to stay afloat and maintain her dignity and sanity in the face of marriage, widowhood, and single parenthood, and still resonates with its view of poverty, sexism, and the drive for success.
